Climate Change and its Impact on Tourism in the Alpine Space (ClimAlpTour)
Start date: Aug 31, 2008, End date: Aug 31, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project aims at dealing with the internationally recognized issue of the effects of climate change on alpine tourism, with reference both to winter tourism and sports and to alpine all-seasons tourism. The issue of providing appropriate strategies to ensure a balanced development of alpine tourism, the preparation of appropriate adaptation policies at the national, regional and local level and the assessment of the economic and social effects of climate change on tourism was a central issue in several studies. Alpine tourism needs to be rethinked and both public institutions and private stakeholders have to meet the challenge of a new idea of tourism which goes beyond the traditional vision of winter sports and other typical alpine tourism activities. This project addresses the need to provide both a sound knowledge of the different aspects of the impact of climate change on alpine tourism and concrete adaptation strategies to apply in selected areas. Achievements: Adaptation strategies for new touristic sites proposals that take into account climate changes have been developed. Each partner found its own strategies according to local needs, expectations and geographical, social and cultural characteristics of the environment in which pilot sites are located. The series of workshops in the pilot sites were strongly appreciated by stakeholders, operators both from public and private sector, thanks to the contribution that the project activities are giving on the elaboration of new ideas and proposals that take into account new customers’ needs and expectations on holidays and touristic sites. More than 250 operators have been involved, and more than 20 meetings performed.Outputs and results can be downloaded on the following ASP web page :[uid]=9&tx_txrunningprojects_pi1[view]=singleView
