From September 2013 to November 2014, ALPARC was the lead partner of the European greenAlps project, with the objective of examining the effectiveness of nature protection measures, from the European level to the level of individual communities, in order to encourage a change of governance so that more consideration will be given to nature in the policies of the Alpine countries.
A study of the European policy for the preservation of biological diversity together with the analysis of the principal results of a whole series of European projects has made possible the formulation of political recommendations, as well as recommendations aimed at those in charge of the Espace Alpin programme in order
