In order to achieve the requirements of the Natural World Heritage, the monitoring of the territory was established in cooperation with the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) of the University of Bern. 

Its target is to indicate social and environmental changes in the World Heritage Region. 

The insights received from the monitoring are the basis for an early diagnosis of problems and risks, the elaboration of measures and raising public awareness of specific topics or problems. Furthermore, the monitoring will provide appropriate arguments regarding the sustainable regional development, which is a main target and included in the management plan of the World Heritage site.
