SUMMARY

The project aims to develop and transfer a sustainable management model to enhance valorisation and preservation of protected mountain areas. Its specific objectives are to: -Identify methods and develop common strategies for an integrated and coordinated management of sensitive mountain areas through a multi-actor/multi-sector approach. -Identify activities and products that can improve territorial development while at the same time guaranteeing and enhancing the valorisation and protection of sensitive areas, e.g. traditional agricultural activities, niche markets/products, leisure activities, eco tourism. -Develop strategies able to further valorise the territory and its assets: e.g. the labelling of mountain products and territorial identity and making use of an online platform to increase the accessibility and visibility of the territory products and services. -Define indicators to assess the efficiency/impact of interventions, also in order to ensure better use of financial instruments and funds. -Introduce sustainable management plans in the territories involved. -Raise the awareness of the economic and political actors/decision-makers in the territory, and the public in general, regarding the natural value and the development potential of natural/protected areas in order to generate economic, political and public interest and action. -Create a Network among partners and other relevant actors and forming links with other mountain Networks in order to support relevant EU legislation, to contribute to recommendations and to further transfer know-how, skills and experience across Europe's mountain regions. -Contribute to a balanced and sustainable socio-economic and environmental development of the areas involved to create better living conditions for the mountain populations. -Favour territorial cohesion among advanced and less advanced territories.
