The general objective of the OPCC-2 is to study and understand the climate changes in the Pyrenees in order to reduce the vulnerability of natural and human systems to the impacts of such changes and support them in their adaptation to the negative effects of climate change through the transfer of knowledge.
To achieve this general objective, the OPCC-2 has defined three strategic or specific objectives:
To identify, analyse and provide the bases of scientific knowledge on the main impacts of climate change in the Pyrenees, as well as on the vulnerability of the main natural and socioeconomic systems to such impacts
To develop tools and methodologies to facilitate decision-making on adaptation to climate change, and disseminate the results of reference research to the different socio-economic coordinating stakeholders of the territory
To raise awareness of the Pyrenean mountain range at European and international level in terms of observation and adaptation to climate change, in a context of transnational cooperation.
From a more operational point of view, and in order to achieve each of the strategic objectives, a total of 5 actions have been proposed, consisting in turn of different specific activities
The thematic blocks addressed in the context of the OPCC 2 are:
This action will generate the following products:
Through this action, innovative instruments and information will be made available to the stakeholders to promote initiatives and actions on climate change. These tools are:

The project has been 65% cofinanced by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg V-A Spain France Andorra programme (POCTEFA 2014-2020). POCTEFA aims to reinforce the economic and social integration of the French–Spanish–Andorran border. Its support is focused on developing economic, social and environmental cross-border activities through joint strategies favouring sustainable territorial development.
