The Standing Secretariat of the Alpine Convention and an international group of experts under the joint chairmanship of Austria and Germany have compiled the 2nd Report on the State of the Alps focusing on "Water and Water Management Issues".
The Ministers of the Alpine states accepted the report at the 10th Alpine Conference in Evian/F in March 2009.
The report provides detailed region-by-region information on the state of water resources, water quality and quantities in the Alps for the first time. Economic and social aspects are also highlighted as well as the impact of climate change on water resources and the role of natural hazards. The publication also provides a summary of the legal framework and the stimuli for the future. The full version of the Report on the State of the Alps in English consists of 200 pages with 120 colour reproductions. The short version is available in five languages (de/fr/it/sl/en). Both versions are available in printed form and may also be downloaded as a pdf from www.alpconv.org.
