Transboundary Parks Programme on PANORAMA

Published on:

A new booklet entitled “Solutions in Focus: Transboundary Protected Area Solutions” has just been published by IUCN under the initiative “PANORAMA – Solutions for a Healthy Planet”, coordinated by IUCN and GIZ.  In the booklet, you will find 17 solutions that have been implemented by protected area managers addressing conservation and economic challenges in transboundary regions.

Eight of the solutions (see Table below) focus on parks that have been certified through the EUROPARC Transboundary Parks Programme.  These were developed in collaboration between protected area professionals and members of the Institute of Silviculture at the University of Natural Resources in Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria (BOKU) (Brady Mattsson and Sophia Fettinger) through the EU funded ForAdapt project.
