-**Webs of life. Alpine ​biodiversity needs ecological connectivity. ​Results ​from the ECONNECT ​project**\\+** FINAL BOOKLET: "WEBS OF LIFEALPINE BIODIVERSITY NEEDS ECOLOGICAL CONNECTIVITY** 
 +__Target groups__\\ 
 +Policy maker; ​ Civil servants / administration; ​ Planner; Scientists; ​ Specific institutions; ​ Civil society / citizen\\ 
 +__Area of application__\\ 
 +Project actions were implemented within the whole Alpine ​region as defined by the Alpine Convention. (p.12) ECONNECT selected and implemented actions in seven Pilot Regions, four of which were transnational (p.16).  
 +The 7 Pilot Regions of ECONNECT were selected following a clearly defined process and in accordance with a set of shared criteria, encompassing diverse natural and ecological conditions (p.43); The following ECONNECT pilot Regions served as case studies for comparison:  
 +• “Berchtesgaden - Salzburg” (Austria-Germany)  
 +• “Hohe Tauern and Dolomite Region” (Austria,​Italy);​  
 +• “Monte Rosa” (Italy, Switzerland);​  
 +• “The south-western Alps” (NPs Mercantour/​Alpi Marittime ) (France, Italy);  
 +• “The Rhaethian Triangle” (Austria-Italy-Switzerland). (p.24);  
 +Common criteria to select areas (p.14):  
 +• Selection of the important areas for ecological connectivity ​at the alpine level,  
 +• Identification of the legal, social and economic barriers preventing the preservation and restoration of ecological networks and proposals on how to over- come them;  
 +• Assessment of how policies affect the establishment of ecological connectivity and how ecological networks in turn, influence spatial/​infrastructure development and economic activities. 
 +Time frame__\\ 
 +The results were compiled ​from September 2008 to November 2011. The result is aging as the data and different legislations in which is based are changing. 
 +Final report, connectivity,​ biodiversity,​ recommendations,​ actions, raising awareness, pilot regions, corridors, ​ landscape connectivity, ​ knowledge transfer, protected area, ecological 
 +open access to the report. ​ As it is a summarizing final report, data are not directly accessible from the report 
 +__Transferability and re-usability__\\ 
 +The report describes in a summarizing way the methods and processes which were applied during ​the project. The working steps are transferable to other regions. ​ The implemented actions on the field are not transferable as they are very specific to each pilot regions, they can always serve as a model. The comunication strategies are transferables and re-usable. 
 +__Sector policies adressed__\\
