Documents from the First World Conference on Terraced Landscapes

From 11th to 15th of November 2010 the First Terraced Landscapes World Conference took place in Yunnan (China). The event gathered people from all over the world to bring together knowledge and operative perspectives about the terraced landscapes. The ALPTER Project was among the participants, with its representatives from Venetian Regional Government (I) and from University of Ljubljiana (SLO).
