Joint action on climate change

Jul 13, 2012 / CIPRA Internationale Alpenschutzkommission
The forests of the Alps will only be able to cope with climate change if the findings from all the various specialist fields are pooled together. And that requires new forms of co-operation and communication.
CIPRA made its contribution as part of the cc.alps climate project with an international conference entitled Forestry and Climate Change - Thinking One Step Ahead! In Interlaken/CH in early July more than 60 experts from various Alpine countries and institutions exchanged their practical experience and the latest findings from a range of research projects. The event was based on the CIPRA compact entitled Forestry and Climate Change.
The cc.alps project was launched in February 2008. With the event in Interlaken and the publication of a total of 11 theme-based compacts CIPRA concluded the cc.alps project, which aimed to harmonise climate response measures with sustainable development. The total budget amounted to around CHF 3 m. -
