At COP21 in Paris, all the chief leaders of the planet have come together to find a new global agreement about climate change. The territories of the Alpine Protected Areas (APA) are also particularly concerned by this problem. The APA has the task of reconciling the protection of nature and the sustainable management of their territories with the new global challenges. That was also clearly stated during the workshop which took place in Berchtesgaden last October on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of ALPARC; of course, these aspects are also taken into account in ALPARC’s strategy for the coming years.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, looking forward to seeing you again at the Danilo Re Memorial and at the General Assembly on 21-24 January 2016, in the Marguareis Natural Park!
