Fact sheets

The Fact Sheets have been developed and published by the Ecological Continuum Initiative and are addressed to a wide range of different target groups. They summarise the most important facts in terms of ecological connectivity for eleven target groups: Nature protection, Local communities, Agriculture, Forestry, Hunting, Fishing, Spatial planning, Landowners, Transport, Water management and Tourism.

The main objective of the Fact Sheets is to outline how the particular stakeholders can contribute to an ecological network in the Alps. Each Fact Sheet contains information about the importance of ecological networks in general. Moreover, existing links between the target groups and ecological connectivity are analysed, giving examples of possible contributions of each target group. A set of potential measures is presented which can be undertaken in order to enhance ecological connectivity. One best practice example which has been implemented in the Alps is described in detail. By raising awareness of the topic and giving concrete examples on how an improvement of the situation is feasible the respective target group is being motivated to take action and contribute to an ecological network in the Alps.
