Nationalpark Gesäuse GmbH
In September 2007, the Gesäuse National Park celebrated its fifth birthday. Now the national park administration wants to examine and evaluate in a comprehensive analysis the establishment work done so far as well as the effectiveness of the management. Together with other experts, E.C.O. was entrusted with the evaluation whereby the methodology of Site Consolidation Scorecard is used. In particular, the aspects of management of natural areas, research, work in the areas of education and public relations as well as the acceptance for the national park and the economic effects of the national park for the region are examined. This should create the basis for the tasks of the national park in the upcoming years.
