C3-Alps stands for Climate Change Capitalisation, and that is precisely this Interreg Alpine Space Project is all about. C3-Alps aims to close the gap between the theoretical knowledge available on the topic of climate adaptation and its practical applications. Integrated knowledge is also to be generated, i.e. adopting a cross-sector approach to the topic; cross-sector adaptation strategies are also to be developed. In this way added value is to be achieved compared with previous projects. The basis consists of 10 to 15 climate projects that are already up and running or completed as part of Interreg as well as outside its scope. They include CLISP and cc.alps, which was implemented by CIPRA. As part of C3-Alps, CIPRA is a subcontractor of the AWNL (Office for Forests, Nature and Landscape) in Liechtenstein.
