As an instrument of sustainable development the Alpine Convention promotes a balanced approach between development and protection within the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region EUSALP. The Alpine Convention has established an institutional structure in order to contribute to the EUSALP and to play a substantial and significant role in the implementation of the Strategy.   
The Working Group „Macro-regional Strategy” is entrusted with the task of facilitating the coordination within the Alpine Convention regarding the EUSALP process as well as the task of easing the exchange between the Alpine Convention and the EUSALP bodies. In doing so the Working Group „Macro-regional Strategy” contributes to implementing the “EUSALP” priority of the Multiannual Work Program (MAP) 2017-2022
