Supporting transformative climate change adaptation in mountainous regions

MountResilience will support European regions and communities located in mountainous areas to increase their capacity to adapt to climate change and to transition towards a climate-resilient society. The project will conceptualise, test, and scale up multi-level, multidimensional and re-applicable climate change adaptation and nature-based solutions addressing policy and societal needs, as well as citizen behaviors, to address specific climate impacts in mountainous regions. The six demonstrator regions are Gabrovo in Bulgaria, Tyrol in Austria, Lapland in Finland, Valais in Switzerland, Piemonte in Italy and Rau Sadului in Romania. Demonstration activities range from adapting agricultural irrigation and fertilisation systems to reindeer herding, water management and sustainable tourism.

ZSI is developing a conceptual framework for transformative climate change adaptation, focusing on deep and systemic changes in mountainous regions. Furthermore, ZSI is supporting the regional demonstrators with regular evaluation and monitoring activities.
