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.
On November 12th at 4pm the virtual meeting "ADAPYR Answers 2." will take place, a question and answer space aimed at presenting the advances of the OPCC ADAPYR project. The OPCC ADAPYR project is a project programmed in the third call of the Interreg POCTEFA 2014-2020 programme that continues the work of the OPCC2 project and will work on three axes:
Do you want to know more about how the climate could be projected in the Pyrenees in the coming decades, how global warming is affecting our summit ecosystems, water resources or how the Pyrenean Climate Change Strategy is progressing?
The OPCC is organising a series of thematic virtual seminars to look in depth at the impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable sectors of our mountain range.
Every Thursday, from October 1st, we offer you this series of six thematic seminars.
According to the World Soil Charter (FAO, 2015), "Healthy soils are a basic prerequisite for meeting diverse needs for food, biomass (energy), fibre, fodder and other products, and for ensuring the delivery of essential ecosystem services in all regions of the world. However, humanity is facing unprecedented pressures on land resources. In particular, various types of degradation - including sealing due to rapid urbanization - are taking a heavy toll, threatening food security and ecological balance.
The OPCC calls for good practices in the management and prevention of natural risks within the framework of the SUDOE MONTCLIMA project.
Mountain areas are among the territories most affected by natural risks and these risks are expected to increase due to the effects of climate change (more severe droughts, higher average temperatures, changes in the rainfall regime). These risks know no administrative limits and require transnational coordination.
On 9 July at 16:00 will take place the virtual meeting "ADAPYR Aswe you", an event to present the ADAPYR project and analyse the climate challenges in the Pyrenees. Participants will be able to intervene and interact with representatives of the different partner organisations of the project.
