The PARN participates and participated in European and national projects of research and territorial cooperation on natural hazards in mountain:

Stakes and objectives of cross border cooperation programs:

Many problems of alpine space management and planning result from a few common specificities: these mountainous regions are sensitive areas with extreme natural conditions subjected to strong human pressure (urbanization, transport infrastructure and touristic areas development…).

Thus, natural hazards constitute an important stake for the regional development of alpine regions of each neighbour alpine country (France, Italy and Switzerland).


The PARN plays an active role in the setup and the coordination of these cross border programs since their creation.
