ForumAlpinum 2014 «Alpine resources» : Proceedings online
17.-19. September 2014 in Darfo Boario Terme (Val Camonica, Italy)
Alpine resources will play a crucial role in the development of the Alpine region. They generate genuine ownership as well as technological, social and cultural innovation, and economic valuation. Due to the natural, social, cultural and economic aspects of Alpine resources, they are key to sustainable development in the region.
The eleventh ForumAlpinum 2014 was jointly organised by the International Scientific Committee for Alpine Research ISCAR and the Mountain University in Edolo, an interdepartmental centre of the University of Milan, Italy. The forum was supported by the Italian Council of Ministries and the Lombardy Region.
The proceedings provide insights into ongoing and planned research, concepts and actions that focus on the use, valorisation and management of Alpine resources. The main results of ForumAlpinum 2014 can be summarised in three statements: (1) Alpine resources create relevant assets for (sustainable) regional development. (2) Additional efforts are needed to ensure a sustainable use of Alpine resources. (3) Mountain-related resource policies are required.
