The Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory (OPCC) of the Working Community of the Pyrenees (CTP) and its current Presidency, the Autonomous Community of Euskadi, are pleased to invite you to the 4rd International Colloquium on Climate Change in Mountain Areas, which will take place on 19 and 20 May 2022 at the Bilbao Palace (Euskalduna).
The Pyrenees are a mountain bioregion particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Mountain areas, in general, are places with a great diversity of ecosystems, where, in addition, the average annual temperature is rising faster than the global average. Climate change has a major impact on biophysical and socio-economic systems, such as flora, fauna, water resources, energy, tourism and agro-pastoralism.
The Operational Plan of the Pyrenean Climate Change Strategy is now available for public consultation
From the Pyrenean Observatory of Climate Change (OPCC) we would like to welcome the new year with the January newsletter which includes important news and initiatives that have taken place in the last months of 2021.

The Pyrenean Climate Change Strategy (EPiCC) is part of a global framework for fighting climate change, supported by a series of initiatives and actions at international, regional and national level.
Climate change is a global phenomenon that affects all regions of the world and has serious consequences for the environment, such as an increase in extreme weather events, a decrease in snow and ice cover and a rise in sea levels. These environmental effects threaten the integrity of the territory and the populations living in it.
