(01.12.2005) The 2006 Yearly Symposium of the International Commission for the Protection of the Alps (CIPRA) is to be held in Bad Hindelang/D from 18 to 20 May. The Symposium is to focus on the growing threat to alpine regions posed by natural hazards and the impact of the climate change on alpine tourism.
One key feature of the event is the presentation of best practice examples of strategies aimed at adapting to climate change in such areas of natural hazards and tourism as well as CO2 reduction. Excursions are also planned to illustrate the adaptation strategies under discussion.
The final conference of the Interreg IIIB Project DYNALP is to be held along with the Yearly Symposium. Some 50 communities throughout the Alpine range carried out projects in four topic areas as part of DYNALP: Regional Planning and Sustainable Development, Conservation of Nature and the Countryside, Tourism and Mountain Farming. The DYNALP projects and those of Future in the Alps, a knowledge management project by CIPRA, are to be showcased at a "project market".
