The Contribution of an Ecological Alpine Network to the Green Economy

Friday, 11 December 2015

The topic of the green economy in the Alpine region is at the heart of the 6th Report on the State of the Alps which is currently being drawn up within the framework of the German presidency of the Alpine Convention. Also within this framework a study has been carried out on how the implementation of the measures for Alpine connectivity contributes to the Green Economy in the Alps. Some initial results of this analysis were discussed in a workshop entitled “Jobs and Growth through Green Infrastructure”, organised by the European Commission’s Green Infrastructure working group at the latest GreenWeek in Brussels. In the coming months other measures selected from the catalogue of measures in favour of ecological connectivity in the Alps, together with examples of achievements from the pilot regions for connectivity, will be studied more in depth as regards their contribution to the local, regional and supra-regional economy and will be the subject of discussion in two international workshops.
