Success story of the day: WWF Italy

20 October 2010 | News story

Story featured in the Made in Countdown 2010 publication: Since economic resources and opportunities of intervention for biodiversity were limited, WWF Italy launched an ambitious project on strategic planning on an eco-regional scale in 2004. The main points of this strategy included the adoption of a proactive approach instead of one based only on the conservation of the last natural areas.

This envisaged a brave vision for the future: the greatest possible participation of all conservation actors belonging to the two homogeneous areas of the Central Mediterranean Eco-region and the Alps Eco-region; and the development of ambitious yet realistic conservation goals on a eco-regional scale to achieve the cooperation of all actors at national and supranational level.
