The conference is dedicated to the question of how national strategies for climate change adaptation can successfully be implemented. Regions, cities and municipalities will present specific practice examples from various fields. Various opportunities will be given for dialogue and networking among the participants. The conference is organised by the Federal Office for the Environment FOEN in collaboration with ProClim, the Forum for Climate and Global Change of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT).
The Swiss-Austrian Mountain Workshop 2016 will generate new ideas for future activites and for the future structure and funding of CH-AT Alliance Mountain Research. It will be a platform for a critical acclaim of activities initiated by CH-AT, for a presentation of success stories, and for a reflection on the lessons learned since the Mountain Days 2013 in Mittersill (Austria). Participants will have the chance to convene side meetings for their own projects!
