The Kalkalpen National Park is aiming for an extension of the national park area. Thanks to the large number of protected areas in the region, there are lots of networking and cooperation possibilities. In this study, E.C.O. assesses and analyses nine different development options, as well as diverse possibilities for cooperation. 20 ecological, sociocultural and regional economic criteria were developed for this purpose. The results of this analysis are to serve decision-makers in the region as a basis for discussion for the future development of the National Park.
