Federparchi – Associated Partner

Federparchi Europarc Italia represents one of the biggest national Charter networks (39 PAs). Italy’s protected areas have an important strategic role where biodiversity conservation is concerned, including to act as ‘testing grounds’ for the implementation of sustainable tourism strategies. There are, however, still some significant critical issues that need to be addressed where protected
area management is concerned, and Federparchi is helping to address such issues, e.g. by lobbying for an update in laws concerning national protected areas, and for an improvement in the management of regional protected areas and the resources they receive.

Federparchi also promotes and facilitates common projects concerning the management of biodiversity, and aims to support its members by providing tools and activities that help to improve the management of Italian protected areas. This is done largely by creating partnerships and sharing conservation and sustainable development goals.
