ClimChAlp, an Interreg IIIB "Alpine Space" transnational project,
co-financed by the European Union.
The ClimChAlp Interreg III B Alpine Space project aims at supporting the political decisions regarding protection and natural disasters prevention due tue climate change in the Alps.
The blanket of greenhouse gases around the earth has thickened. As a result, global temperatures are increasing, wind patterns have changed, seas and oceans have grown and the distribution of plant and animal species has changed.
Climate change poses a serious challenge to social and economic development.
The Alps are particularly sensitive to climate change, and recent warming has been roughly three times the global average. Climate model project changes in the coming decades, including a reduction in snow cover at low altitudes, receding glaciers and melting permafrost at higer altitudes. Furthermore experts point out sharp shifts in temperatures and extreme precipitations.
Climate change is influencing a critical economic and ecological system, which is already vulnerable to natural hazards as well as demographic and environmental pressures.
International commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are essential. In the Alpine area they should be integrated through sectorial and economic policies in order to reduce and adapt to climate change consequences.
This website aims at supporting the ClimChAlp project activities and disseminate results to the public.
Details on "project activities" are available in "the project" section and the "press agency" section gathers and stores news on climate change and related subjects.
A complete list including the Lead Partner of the project and the 22 partners is available in the "project partners" section.
The website aims as well at supporting the project partners in developing project activities and sharing official documents. For this purpose, intranet is available: through login, it is possible to access project activities and project documents.
Furthermore, if you wish to contact the project partners, please enter the "Contact us" section.
