Switzerland is the new focus of our outgoing Alpine Arc programme, with a specific emphasis on:

  • Rivers
  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Ecological infrastructure
  • Green economy

In particular, we will:

  • Focus on reducing the impacts of hydropower and restoring rivers ecologically
  • Promote the shifting of agricultural practices towards less resource intensive and more environmentally friendly production
  • Work towards halting habitat degradation or reversing it in high value (national and international) habitats, and restoring natural ecological processes.
  • Focus on reducing habitat fragmentation by restoring stepping stone habitats (ecological infrastructure) in both terrestrial and aquatic habitats.
  • Work towards the implementation of a legislation that allows to incentivise/steer less energy use and resource consumption.
