Progetto CEETO: Pronte le versioni in italiano delle Linee Guida per i Decisori Politici ed il Manuale per i Gestori delle Aree Protette

Il Turismo Sostenibile si realizza quando le aspettative dei residenti coincidono con quelle dei turisti, assicurando che vengano rispettati sia l’esperienza turistica sia i valori ambientali e socio-culturali dei territori interessati. Durante i suoi tre anni di attività, il progetto CEETO ha testato strumenti di monitoraggio dei flussi turistici e promosso innovativi modelli di pianificazione e di governance del turismo sostenibile, rendendo il turismo non una minaccia ma un incentivo alla protezione della natura ed al benessere locale.

Da questi principi e dalle esperienze maturate nelle Azioni Pilota del Progetto CEETO, sono nati alcuni dei principali output di progetto, rivolti ai professionisti dello sviluppo territoriale e della tutela ambientale. Parliamo in particolare delle Linee Guida per i Decisori Politici e del Manuale per i Gestori delle Aree Protette:

  • Le Linee Guida per decisori politici sono state concepite come uno strumento finalizzato a supportare i decisori politici a livello nazionale, regionale e locale nel processo di pianificazione e gestione del turismo all’interno e intorno alle Aree Protette, fornendo raccomandazioni su come integrare i principi del turismo sostenibile nelle politiche pubbliche. Inoltre, questo documento capitalizza i risultati e la sintesi delle Azioni Pilota realizzate in otto Aree Protette dell’Europa Centrale durante l’implementazione del progetto CEETO.
  • ll Manuale per i gestori delle aree protette è un documento operativo che offre agli Enti di Gestione una guida passo-passo (tipo Libro di Cucina), sulla predisposizione e gestione del Turismo Sostenibile nelle Aree Protette. Il Manuale mette a disposizione suggerimenti pratici e raccomandazioni per avviare i processi partecipativi nella pianificazione, comunicazione e monitoraggio, fornendo anche indicazioni su un nuovo livello di cooperazione e collaborazione tra le Aree protette e gli Operatori Turistici, creando destinazioni sostenibili e promuovendo un turismo responsabile e di qualità.
  • È stata inoltre realizzata un’ulteriore breve Linea Guida per fornire agli Enti di Gestione delle Aree Protette, strategie e suggerimenti per collaborare con i Tour Operator al fine di promuovere le destinazioni turistiche più sostenibili e rafforzare i vantaggi che possono derivare dalla collaborazione Pubblico-Privato.
  • Infine, come prodotto di ampia e sintetica divulgazione, è stata realizzata una Brochure, realizzata per condividere le storie di successo di progetto ed i principali output, e che si affianca ai Volantini per Turisti e Comunità Locali ed alle Infografiche. Essa include un riassunto delle best practice e delle attività svolte nelle 8 Azioni Pilota di CEETO, che hanno portato alla redazione degli altri documenti tecnici suddetti e che hanno innescato nei territori dei meccanismi virtuosi che vedranno la loro maturazione nei prossimi anni.

Linee Guida e Manuale rientrano nella letteratura scientifica più aggiornata e sono disponibili in varie lingue qui sul CEETO Network, nella sezione “Documents” e sul sito web di progetto. Da ora sono disponibili i documenti anche in Italiano.

I link diretti per scaricare i documenti in Italiano sono i seguenti:

  1. Linee Guida per Decisori Politici;
  2. Manuale per Enti di Gestione di Aree Protette;

CEETO Project end - Outputs and Dissemination Events

The month of May 2020, as final month of the CEETO Project, was particularly fruitful from both the production of outputs and the dissemination of their results.

In addition to the Final Conference (of which you can find all the material in the dedicated section of the Platform link), the 8th of May saw the presentation of a Webinar (addressed to policy makers and Protected Areas management bodies) organized by Europarc. During the Webinar, in addition to a quick escursus on the objectives and outputs of the CEETO project and some examples of the Pilot Actions on Sustainable Tourism, implemented by Ente Parchi Emilia Centrale - Regione Emilia Romagna (Italy) and Landscape Park of Struniano (Slovenia), two of the main outputs of the Project were presented:  The Guidelines for Policy Makers (produced by RRC Koper) and the Manual for PA Managers (produced by WWF Adria).

To review the event presentations and the video of the event (in English), this is the link.

To access the last project documents, you can go to the relevant pages of the official website:

or go to the "Documents" section of the platform - CEETO Documents => Sustainable Tourism => How To.

Further, after the Final Conference, several dissemination events were organised in each of the 5 local languages of the project partners. These events were also rich in content, with contributions from outside the CEETO Project and both technical and institutional interventions.

Some of these events were recorded and can be attended at any time:

Webinar on Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas: from design to implementation – the experience of CEETO project

The Central Europe Eco-Tourism: tools for nature protection (CEETO) Interreg project ran for three years, to test innovative governance models for tourism development in Protected Areas.  Integrating environmental, social and economic aspects, several solutions were implemented in protected areas in Austria, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia and Italy, with the aim to make tourism a real driver for nature protection and local economic and social well-being.

In this webinar, jointly organized between EUROPARC Federation and CEETO Interreg CE project, we will hear some of the best examples of the project implementation, and get access to relevant tools for Protected Area Managers and policy-makers to design and implement Sustainable Tourism Strategies in Protected Areas.

For the registration to the webinar follow this LINK.

Ente Parchi Emilia Centrale, ready for the ECST application

70 projects complete the dossier with which the Park Authority will present to Europe its application for the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in the Protected Areas of Central Emilia.

 

The final plenary forum (Rubiera - Modena - Italy - 04/12/2019) marked the end of the process started by Ente Parchi Emilia Centrale last April to obtain the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism (ECST), a certification recognised at continental level and supported by Europarc and Federparchi.

The idea of starting the application process started with the participation of the Management Authority in the European project CEETO, of which the Emilia-Romagna Region is the leading partner and within which the Park Authority has prepared, for some protected areas of its territory, a five-year Action Plan and implemented two Pilot Actions for the knowledge and a more sustainable management of tourism flows.

Central Emilia is the first "macro-area" of the Emilia-Romagna region to apply for certification for all its 8 protected areas located between the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia, which thus start, along with their territories, to obtain the important recognition and to be included among the destinations of excellence at European level.

In recent months, dozens of public and private stakeholders have taken part in the candidacy process, working in a vast territory that embraces very different environments and "kind of tourisms".

Municipal administrations, cultural and sports associations, entrepreneurs and tourism operators, promotion offices and destinations management organizations (DMOs), environmental and excursion guides, training and category bodies have been the protagonists of a proactive discussion both among themselves and with the Parks Authority. A step-by-step process that began with a shared analysis of the opportunities to be seized, useful for defining a common strategy and outlining concrete objectives to be achieved in the next five years, through an Action Plan (including those prepared within the framework of the CEETO Project), which includes no less than 70 initiatives and projects (for a total of about 12 million € of investment) carried out not only by the Managing Authority but also, and above all, by the subjects who participated in the process.

The final forum was the moment of approval (in the photo) and subscription of the actions that constitute the heart of the " application dossier ", already sent to the examination of the commission of Europarc.

CEETO pilot actions in Emilia Centrale Parks

Lago Santo Modenese area, within the High Modenese Apennines Regional Park, and Salse di Nirano Nature Reserve are two pilot areas managed by the Emilia Centrale Parks Management Authority. Both areas are affected by a high tourist presence which, along with inadequate visitors´ behaviour, cause damage to natural values and overall experience of the protected area. Therefore, in Lago Santo Modenese area tourist flows were monitored via the number of sold parking tickets and questionnaires to define measures for better spatial and time distribution of tourists’ visits in the area. Also, sustainable traffic measures and raising knowledge and awareness about the value of the area were implemented. In Salse di Nirano area, to protect the Zone A (integral protection zone) of the Reserve, a Video Content Analysis (VCA) system was installed to detect the type of the use and threats the Reserve must face from the point of view of sustainable tourism planning. The video of the system can be seen here: https://youtu.be/6mbOOV_c0FI
