Description Pluriannual agreement between State and Regions to coordinate funds in supporting projects in Alpine territories
Major objectives Financial commitment to support local and interregioanl approaches as regards common priorities in French Alps. In particular, support to interregional networks at work on issues listed in this agenda.
Short Summary Interregional agreement for Alpine range 2015/2020
This framework for a coordinated action of main public bodies (regions and nation) in the field of land management and regional development defines common terms for public authorities’ interventions along a six years period all over French Alpine region.
It refers to a midterm scheme (Alpine Interregional development guidelines Scheme) previously designed by Interregional Committee for the French Alps, which highlighted main assets, challenges and priorities which call for public interventions, so as to allow sustainable development of this large mountain area.
This agreement, subscribed by both French Regions (Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur and Rhone-Alpes) and French State, give them the opportunity, in a crosscutting approach, to concentrate sources of funding for public interventions focused on common priorities in French Alps.
For the 2015/2020 period, following priorities benefit from this coordinated funding mechanism:
• biodiversity preservation,
• ecological tourism development,
• natural risks integrated management,
• high mountain pastures management

Beside these economic and environmental topics, improvement in services of general interest delivery (in particular digital equipment in peripheral areas) appears of common interest for partners financially committed in this agreement.

An integrating dimension of this partnership agreement is implemented thanks to specific governance at technical and political level. More specifically, feedback from technical subgroups helps to assess agreement’s efficiency and will help to amend it at mid term.
