Attaches the following eight recommendations to the renewal:

1. implement the management plan for the Casentino Forests National Park and reinforce co-operation with the national park in order to co-ordinate all the activities, especially in terms of research;

2. the nature reserve should continue to stand out as the reference for nature protection in the region;

3. care should be taken to ensure that the Sasso Fratino Integral Nature Reserve and the adjacent biogenetic reserves continue to be managed as a cohesive whole;

4. special attention should continue to be given to protecting Monte Falco in order to avoid, in particular, the construction of any new ski slopes;

5. the necessary funding should be provided in order to maintain the very high standard of scientific research;

6. any further damage in the buffer zone, such as the laying of new roads or significant improvement work on the ski slopes, should be avoided;

7. the number of visits should not be increased and they should be restricted to researchers and people with a genuine interest in the site;

8. the possibility of extending the European Diploma to include the biogenetic reserves should be studied.
