Management of natural parks in mountainous areas - transferring know-how from Italy to Montenegro

FAO’s Investment Centre organized a study tour for a group of representatives from Montenegro to visit Italy and see how mountain areas and natural parks can be managed and developed through farming and off-farming activities. Italy has a long history of protected areas and the participants visited most significant Italian mountains (Gran Sasso, South Tyrol, Aosta Valley) and their natural parks. Meetings with local authorities as well as field visits provided examples of good practices for income generating activities and sustainable environmental policies in agrofood, forestry, animal husbandry and tourism sectors.
