WHY THE ALPS INITIATIVE (EO4ALPS)

The Alps, with their biodiversity capital, water and wood reserves, are the natural, cultural, living and economic environment for nearly 14 million people and an attractive tourist destination for approximately 120 million guests every year. As explained in the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) the Alpine area is composed of territories with contrasted demographic, social and economic trends and a great cultural and linguistic diversity. There is a growing interest in the implementation of macro-regional strategies to improve cooperation in the Alpine States. In this context, Earth Observation (EO) represents an opportunity to act as a potential catalyst for innovation and growth in the region as well as to face some of the complex issues ongoing in the alpine environment.
