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.

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.

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.
