Etifor participates in AlpES, a project designed for supporting the valorisation of alpine ecosystems, by carrying our participatory activities in the territory of the Alto Bellunese. The activities, carried out on behalf of the Veneto Region and in collaboration with the LAG Alto Bellunese and the University of Padova, aim at finding innovative management approaches of forest lands, through new products and services, including tourism and recreational activities.
Development and protection of lowland forest resources
Since 2011, we assist AFP (Association of Lowland Forests) in the management of 320 hectares of recreational forests in the Venice area (3 million tourist per year). The forests are both publicly and privately owned and are FSC certified. We deal with fundraising activities (€ 1.7 million in 5 years), project assistance to members, dissemination and promotion activities for the forests.
The SIMRA project wants to bridge the gap in knowledge about social innovation in marginalised rural areas through the enhancement of innovative systems and good governance mechanisms applied to rural, development.
Contrasting the vulnerability of protected ecosystems
Making Good Nature is a LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance project that identifies and quantifies the main ecosystem services provided by Natura 2000 Network sites in six Italian regions. As technical consultants, we deal with the analysis of the bibliography on ecosystem services in the forests of Lombardy; we carry out a field survey for the valuation of the touristic-recreational services in four pilot-areas; we organize and manage stakeholder consultation tables.
