Sustainable Development: Safeguard of Biodiversity and Environment, Quality of Life

Parco Lombardo del Ticino - the first regional park in Italy - was born in 1974 to defend the river and the several natural environments of Ticino Valley from the attacks of industrialization and from a greater urbanization. The Consortium managing the Park - consisting of 47 Municipalities and 3 Provinces, controls a territory of over 91 thousand hectares, by using a differentiated protection system for natural areas, agricultural and urban areas. The aim is to combine the needs of environmental protection with the social and economic demand of the several communities living in the area, which is one of the most densely populated areas in Italy. A difficult but possible challenge, whose must is "development yes, but sustainable".
