- By promoting and attending all the events, the local development agency was able to draw on key issues and propose two cooperation projects promoting local public mobility and the valorisation of a site. These projects are to be developed together with the municipality of the valley. ​ In terms of tourism, the AlpES project is to further investigate the potential to adopt payment-based mechanisms to support the valorisation of the local site.{{ :​en:​albero_coop1.jpg?​nolink&​200|}}+ By promoting and attending all the events, the local development agency was able to draw on key issues and propose two cooperation projects promoting local public mobility and the valorisation of a site.

  ​Communication of the ecosystem services concepts should start from the translation into terms that resonate with local understandings of territory, development,​ identity, and culture. ​  In the case of biomass production, the community was first asked to reflect on what the forest meant to them from a cultural and historical point of view, and how their forest/​grassland resources could support local development. ​  In the case of ‘recreational service’, it was translated into a concept more closely aligned with tourism’s best practices, which are currently associated with the concepts of destination organisation,​ management and marketing. In this case, tourism was described as a common and territorial good that can be cultivated by the community to support local development.  ​Communication of the ecosystem services concepts should start from the translation into terms that resonate with local understandings of territory, development,​ identity, and culture. ​  In the case of biomass production, the community was first asked to reflect on what the forest meant to them from a cultural and historical point of view, and how their forest/​grassland resources could support local development. ​  In the case of ‘recreational service’, it was translated into a concept more closely aligned with tourism’s best practices, which are currently associated with the concepts of destination organisation,​ management and marketing.
