The Park has been included in the list during the session of the World Heritage Committee held on December 2nd, 1999 in Marrakech, Morocco; the new site has been called "Ferrara, City of the Renaissance, and its Po Delta", since it is an extension of the Este town site already present in the List since 1995. In its justification for the inclusion, the Committee praises the extraordinary natural ecosystem which was closely linked by man to the town between the 14th and the 16th century.
Main human activities in the Park:
Agriculture (22.000 ha)
The Master Plan of the Coast of the Regional Po Delta Park
is a document elaborated by the Park with the contributions of the Provinces of Ferrara and Ravenna, of the Emilia–Romagna Regional Authority and the European Union.
It is a tool for the local management of a protected area, and is driven by innovation and research.
What is included in MP cannot be imposed like a law, but on the other hand is available to every Institution in order to realize a pratical approach to sustainable development.
The missions of the project are: knowledge, regulation and strategy.
