Description

WIKIAlps highlights missing links and synergies between economic growth and environmental development in projects in the fields of "Inclusive Growth" and "Resource Efficiency and Ecosystem Management". Relevant actors from the local up to the international level will be provided with operational tools supporting them in implementing spatial development and governance approaches. The main actions and tools of WIKIAlps are:
- 2 transnational East-West working tables with stakeholders highlighting common issues and needs;
- a wiki reorganising selected project outcomes and providing rapidly operative information ready-to-use for policy design;
- mini-guides as immediate tools for policy makers and civil servants on how to practically include project findings in their planning;
- spatial development recommendations for the following 2 levels:
     a) policy makers/civil servants and
     b) researchers/entrepreneurs.
