Rapid policy assessment for the Alps ecoregion, by Olivia Bina
The Policy assessment intends to provide an initial overview of the legal and policy framework relevant to the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity in the Alpine region. It preludes to a broad identification and analysis of policies and legislation which either protect and enhance biodiversity or negatively affect biodiversity.
The policy assessment is designed to contribute to a wider analysis, which includes a biodiversity assessment and a socio-economic assessment. Its analysis of the current policy context provides WWF with an overview of key themes and opportunities for future action, which will feed into discussions on the future Alpine Programme, on WWF’s priorities and its potential role in the region.
