The Alpine Convention has recently announced the Publication of the Climate Action Plan 2.0 which supports progress towards the transformation of the Alps into a climate-neutral and climate-resilient region by 2050. The Climate Action Plan 2.0 has been developed by the Alpine Climate Board (ACB) and approved by the XVI Alpine Conference. It calls for joint activities across sectors and borders, aiming to close the implementation gap between strategies and actions to address climate change. The document operationalises the objectives laid out in the Alpine Climate Target System 2050 towards climate-neutral and climate-resilient Alps. It is based on implementation pathways, i.e. sequences of concrete measures designed in close cooperation with the Convention’s Thematic Working Bodies and further experts. Sixteen priority pathways have been indentified (see below). More information here.
Along the same lines, few days ago the Alpine Convention has announced the first edition of the Climate Hour that will be held on World Environment Day, on 5th June 2021. More information here.
