A regional ecological network is only implemented in concrete form if is incorporated in urban and environmental planning and programmes by local authorities and only if it is able to bring together the intentions and capacity for action of all the actors involved in urban and regional development. The network contract in the Province of Varese described in the article is based on practical, strategic and involvement actions designed to define the framework of ecological connections of the sites belonging to the Nature 2000 Network present in the province. Because of the similar objectives and structure, the political and administrative instrument is a carefully designed adaptation of the River Contract designed to improve the environment in a local context that is consistent from an eco-systemic viewpoint which, on the basis of negotiated programmes, agreed upon in the community, is designed to achieve a lasting solution.
