This catalogue of measures has been elaborated in the frame of the Ecological Continuum Initiative. It lists a number of exemplary measures from the various Alpine countries that can contribute to the implementation of ecological networks. The Measures Catalgue is also available as an interactive online version on: http://www.alpine-ecological-network.org/measurescatalogue.
Nature protection in protected areas alone is not sufficient for the long-term conservation of Alpine biodiversity. Successful nature protection and the associated conservation of biodiversity require ecologically compatible action across the entire space, particularly outside protected areas. The landscape can be enhanced through targeted measures and support programmes which focus on nature conservation. These can contribute to the implementation of an ecological network by facilitating the connectivity of habitats and protected areas.
