C3 Alps Project accepted

The project on "Capitalising Climate Change Knowledge for Adaptation in the Alpine Space" (C3-Alps) will synthesize, transfer, visualise and implement policy and practice results of previous Alpine Space climate change adaptation projects. The capitalisation approach aims at generating new and directly usable forms of state-of-the-art synthesis adaptation knowledge in the Alps. Harmonised findings and datasets across disciplinary sectors are made available for transparent and effective implementation of adaptation measures by decision-makers.

Effective, efficient and tailor-made communication and transfer of climate change impact findings are ensured to target groups in order to support governance frameworks and initiate cross-cutting adaptation processes, strategies, action plans and decision support in pilot regions and municipalities. To leverage sustainable impacts, the project will be driven by the information and user needs of target groups. By supporting bottom-up action. C3-Alps will contribute to implementation of national adaptation policies on regional and municipal levels and to advancement of national adaptation strategies.

Z_GIS will be active in spatially explicit decision support by collecting and synthesizing spatial datasets in a one-stop-shop Alpine portal.

Duration: 01/2012 - 12/2014 (36 month)
Total Budget: 3,1 mio EUR
