Climate Change, Impacts and Adaptation Strategies in the Alpine Space
Start date: Feb 28, 2006,
End date: Mar 30, 2008
"Climate change, impacts and adaptation strategies in the Alpine Space” is a strategic project with the aim to give concrete input to a future Alpine Space Programme based on conclusions about the type of climate changes in the Alpine Space and its potential effects. By a general assessment of historical climate changes and its impacts as well as by climate models, future scenarios and their effects on natural hazards, spatial development and key economic sectors (e.g. tourism, mobility, agriculture, forestry, settlements and industries) will be ascertained. Within four thematic Work Packages (besides obligatory WP 1-4) the project will cover different aspects of climate change in the Alpine Space and its surrounding lowlands. Strategic recommendations shall be laid down in a synthesis work package as an input to a follow up programme. They will give hints for improving relevant policies, instruments and administrative structures particularly in the area of risk prevention and spatial planning as well as other sectors.
