An English-language report on the water household of the Alps in times of climate change was recently published under the title "Regional Climate Change and Adaptation - The Alps Facing the Challenge of Changing Water Resources". The authors consider specific options for adaptation to changes in the availability of water in the Alpine region, including the keys to success and the obstacles to be overcome.
The report has been published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in collaboration with the German Federal Office of the Environment (UBA), the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), the European Academy in Bolzano (EURAC), the Slovene Environmental Authority, the University of Savoy and the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention.
