Once again this year, the Pyrenean Climate Change Observatory (OPCC) of the Working Community of the Pyrenees (CTP) welcomes spring with an agenda full of news and initiatives on climate change adaptation and natural risk management in mountain areas.

The Observatory would like to welcome the New Year 2021 with the february newsletter.

Sharing experiences is the key: send us your good adaptation practice!
Climate change and extreme events: are they two sides of the same coin?

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. 

Hello everyone and welcome to the second OPCC newsletter of 2020.

A lot has happened since our last newsletter. Little by little, life is reviving again in our offices and the OPCC team is finally back together to organize many events and advance their projects.

MONTCLIMA Natural Risks and Climate Change in Mountain areas

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.

 

Welcome to our OPCC Newsletter, the second one in 2020,

We wish all our readers good health and that little by little we will overcome this stage of confinement, which is longer than expected. We hope that we can progressively return to normality.
