Sustainable and effective protection against natural hazards is an essential predisposition for settlement and socio-economic development in the Alps. This requires new instruments and processes of risk governance, in order to find the optimal approach to limit the overexploitation of natural resources.

 

In this video, Action Group 8 "Risk governance" looks at the need for adaptation to climate change at the Alpine level.

This clip illustrates the need for local mobilisation but also the need for cooperation networks to find global solutions. The Alpine macro-strategy through its bottum-up approach favours the emergence of these initiatives and of networks of actors with similar needs and expectations.
