Sustainable Development and World Heritage Site Management in Switzerland

Amid global challenges such as climate change and growing tourist numbers, what issues do UNESCO World Heritage Sites face in terms of sus­ tainable development? Since the adoption of a global policy on World Heritage and Sustainable Development in 2015, reflecting on this question has become increasingly important in terms of framing national responses.

Outdoor Sports Infrastructure Planning – Hiking and Mountain Biking

Hiking and mountain biking are extremely popular sports activities. Especially in mountain areas, they are the two main summertime leisure activities. Many natural habitats, however, have been affected by the frequent presence of large numbers of people; conflicts between different kinds of users have also arisen. This factsheet presents various planning tools for conflict prevention or resolution, and provides an overview of likely future challenges.

The scientific councils of Alpine protected areas: an overview and analysis of their contribution to linking science and management

There are numerous protected areas (PAs) within the Alpine Arc. PA practitioners strongly rely on science to gain legitimacy and address complex issues. To this end they establish scientific councils (SCs), a scientific department, or both.

Recommendations for establishing or renewing scientific councils in protected areas

The following recommendations stem from a workshop entitled Interface between science and mountain pro- tected areas: The role of scienti c councils, held in Chambéry (France) in June 2015. This workshop gathered together some 30 scientists and managers from all Alpine countries and different types of protected areas (PA) and allowed discussing the goals, composition, organization and management of scientific councils. While based on experiences in Alpine countries, these recommendations can be applied to managed PAs in general.

Die Referate und Folgerungen des Jahreskongresses sind in einem Ebook zusammengefasst worden.
Factsheet: The economic impact of tourism in Swiss parks
  • 2014

Added value from tourism in Swiss parks

Many rural and regional economies have been affected by decreasing availability of jobs in the forestry and agri­ cultural sectors. This has led to increases in commuter numbers and depopulation. The negative impact of such structural change may be mitigated by the wide range of activities offered by parks and protected areas, which may lead to the creation of jobs in many sectors. This potential is one of the premises of the Swiss Parks Ordin­ ance (Federal Council 2007), whose explicit purpose it is both to conserve natural habitats and landscapes, and to encourage sustainable regional business activities.
