FROM GUIDELINES TO PRACTICE
Integration and cooperation between different user groups
Many forms of land use are linked up to grouse protection and tourism. Especially in the mountainous areas of Central Europe this often leads to conflicting interests in a limited area. However, there are also opportunities for cooperation. Grouse protection and land use within the same area are often possible. This integration of nature protection and sustainable use is also reflected by the idea of Natura 2000.
Regional differences should be considered
There are strong differences regarding the grouse and tourism conditions throughout Europe. Scandinavia and Central Europe can be regarded as the two extremes. In Central Europe there are strong traditions with respect to tourism and the mechanisms that are developed aim at improving the existing situation. In contrast, Scandinavia has the chance to develop new mechanisms for sustainable nature tourism.
