Project summary

DIAMONT worked in the field of sustainable regional development in the Alps. The project provided expert assistance to the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention in Innsbruck with the review and implementation of the pan-Alpine information system SOIA (System for Observation and Information of the Alps). DIAMONT elaborated harmonised data and relevant indicators to monitor the sustainable development of the Alpine regions. This process involved the testing of pilot tools for regional development and discussions with the population in test regions. It also analysed the planning milieu and experts expectations on alpine development, made an inquiry among mayors. Besides 3 databases on hard data on NUTS5 level and qualitative data on steering instruments and best practices it published an Atlas of the Alps in five languages.

Atlas of the Alps: Mapping the AlpsOther EN, IT, FR, SI, DE, AT Civil society / citizen The Alps are the largest and most significant high mountain area in Europe and the starting point for numerous debates on transit traffic, climate change, tourist trends or the impact of a global market economy, to name but a few. What has been lacking so far is a sound basis of cross-national data, as well as comparative maps generated from such a basis. Editors Ulrike Tappeiner, Axel Borsdorf and Erich Tasser, together with well-known experts and practitioners from the respective nation states, were thus confronted with the task of compiling an up-to-date and solid basis of information that would support stakeholders from the fields of research, politics and the economy in dealing with issues and decisions involving the Alpine region. This is how Mapping the Alps came about. It contains more than 100 four-colour, pan-Alpine maps on social, economic, and environmental aspects, presented in an intuitive format with concise interpretations in German, French, Italian, Slovenian, and English.
