The main objective of the study “Adaptation to climate change in the Pyrenees” was to identify and analyse the measures and adaptation strategies to climate change most relevant at both the Pyrenees and European level, as well as to promote these experiences to support the dissemination of good practices across the Pyrenees.
The main tasks of the project were to:
- Identify the impacts and challenges of climate change in the Pyrenees to assess the vulnerability of the territory.
- List and analyse adaptation strategies for the Pyrenean region that could be particularly successful and effective;
- List strategies for adaptation from other European regions particularly relevant and reproducible in the Pyrenees;
- Develop materials and tools useful for local players in the Pyrenees territory for their contribution to planning adaptation to climate change.
Overall, the study helped to mobilize stakeholders, decision-makers and territory elected representatives around the issue of climate change and adaptation. Itcontributed to the emergence, strengthening and implementation of operational initiatives in the medium term that are coordinated and consistent in the field of adaptation to climate change. Fresh Thoughts supported the project by bringing in the international dimension by transferring best practice adaptation measures from other mountain regions to the Pyrenees.
