The Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory, OPCC, aims to monitor and understand the climate change phenomenon in the Pyrenees in order to help the territory adapt to its effects. Their vision is to be the reference platform of knowledge on adaptation to climate change in mountain ecosystems.

Its operation is structured around a Technical Committee, a Coordination Committee and an Advisory Committee.

The technical committee is composed by representatives of the 7 territories of the CTP, and has the function of guiding and setting priorities.

The coordination committee is made up of the partners of the project and is responsible for coordinating and carrying out the operational part of the project.

The advisory committee is made up of scientists and representatives of the relevant socioeconomic sectors in the Massif. Its purpose is to ensure scientific rigour and provide strategic guidance to the work of the OPCC.
