Aterno Valley Model Forest

In a nutshell

On 27 October 2018, the Abruzzo Region signed an agreement with the MMFN to identify a first pilot area in which to implement the principles of the Model Forest. Fifteen municipalities in the Media Valle dell'Aterno (L'Aquila, Abruzzo - Italy) have joined.

Media Valle dell'Aterno is an area of ​​about 30 thousand hectares, of which a large part insists within the Sirente-Velino Regional Natural Park. Work groups divided by thematic groups (forest management, agriculture, tourism, associations) are underway to gather ideas and needs that can be included in the strategic plan of the Media Valle dell'Aterno, which will soon be formed into an "association of Valley".

The project was promoted by the "Torre del Cornone - ILEX" Environmental Education Center in Fontecchio (L'Aquila, Abruzzo - Italy) as part of the wider Mediterranean Mosaics program, financed by the Swiss Mava Foundation and implemented in collaboration with the Italian Bird Protection League (Lipu ) and Al-Shouf Cedar Society (ACS) (Lebanon).
