Abruzzo Region joins the International Model Forest Network

Saturday, October 27, 2018, at the Sirente Velino Regional Park’s headquarter in the village of Rocca di Mezzo, our Abruzzo region formally joined the International Model Forests Network.

As stewards of Abruzzo, we can determine and manage the priorities, strengths, and issues that are unique to us and ensure that our forests will be governed and preserved by the people who know our region best.

Later, 15 municipalities located in the Aterno river valley applied to establish the first pilot “Model forest” in Abruzzo (the second in Italy).

The coming  step is now to develop a shared strategic plan for a sustainable and participatory land management.
