The main objective of the IMPRECO project is to improve the effectiveness of the ecosystem services offered by the areas. Strengthening the potential of the protected areas themselves in the conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems through the implementation of a transnational network. IMPRECO – common strategies and best practices to improve the transnational protection of ecosystem integrity and services – takes place within the framework of the European transnational programme INTERREG V-B ADRION
The project aims to improve the quality of the tourist destination in the areas between northeastern Italy and Austria. The GoToNATURE team will develop tourism products that enhance lesser-known natural and cultural resources by involving local citizens.
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.
