Thirty people took part on Wednesday 24 February in the launch meeting of the new LIFE Technical Assistance project led by the Pyrenees Working Community, through the Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory: "LIFE TA-CC PIRINEES, towards a more climate-resilient Pyrenean mountain area".
At the start of the new year, the Iberian Peninsula and the south of France were hit by an extraordinary storm of cold and snow, unprecedented in some territories. Heavy snowfalls, with accumulations of more than 50 cm of snow in two days, have kept much of the centre and east of the peninsula as well as the south of France on alert for this extreme weather event.
From the OPCC we would like to welcome 2021 by highlighting the cycle of web seminars on Pyrenean Thursdays (#JUEVESPIRENAICOS). Through six thematic webinars led by the thematic experts of the OPCC's network of scientists, we were able to delve deeper into the effects of climate change in this particularly vulnerable bioregion.
On the occasion of the International Mountain Day, celebrated every year on 11 December, the Permanent Mission of the Kyrgyz Republic to the United Nations has organized a commemorative event in collaboration with the Group of Friends of Mountainous Countries, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
