In compliance with the rules and principles laid down in Act No. 97 of 1994, the present Regional Act promotes the protection, the improvement and the socio-economic development of mountain areas, which are regarded by the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region as an important element of its own environmental, natural, cultural and socio-economic heritage. Article 2 designates the application scope of the Act, which shall apply to the territories of mountain Communes. With a view to encouraging the conservation and, when necessary, the restoration of agricultural and sylvo-pastoral resources, the Region promotes the creation of consortia by owners of lands falling within mountain areas (art. 6). Article 7 describes in detail the aims to be pursued by such consortia. Article 12 deals with development of mountain agriculture. Furthermore, mountain Communes are entitled to draw up special restoration plans devoted to abandoned lands or non cultivated lands (art. 13). Article 16 sets up the International Centre of Mountain Research.
