Synergy of improved environmental sustainability with economic development based on nature-based tourism (or eco-tourism)

During the International Po Delta Bird-watching Fair, organized by DELTA 2000, in April 2006 we would like to have the FRAP Final Italian Workshop (WP11). In 2004, the visitors of the Bird-watching Fair were 25, 000 and last year - 2005 - they peaked up to 30, 000.

Visitors are interested in nature and tourism, so during the Fair we could have person interested in nature, tourism, and the Best Practices presented, such as the "sacrificial ponds", or the concept of payment of environmental services to extensive aquaculture ponds, could be interesting for management authorities of Parks, Protected Areas, and so on, to develop bird-watching and to try to solve the local "conflicts" related to biodiversity uses.
