Together with the Alpine Climate Target System 2050, this plan is part of a broader strategy that supports progress towards climate-neutral and climate-resilience in the Alps by 2050.
The Climate Action Plan 2.0 prioritises specific measures to implement the mentioned target system by 2050 in 10 sectors of activity: transport; energy; tourism; natural hazards; water; spatial planning; soil; mountain agriculture; mountain forests; ecosystems and biodiversity.
Focusing on the medium-term horizon (5-10 years), the plan proposes detailed implementation pathways.
For Mountain Agriculture two pathways have been identified:
- Promotion of Alpine products and increase in locally retained value added for a sustainable and climate-friendly agriculture;
- Moving to organic and climate-friendly methods in Alpine farming.
For Mountain Forest four pathways have been identified:
- Promoting the full use of the potential of Alpine protective mountain forests;
- Promoting Alpine forests as carbon sinks;
- Accelerate forest conversion to more resilient and close-to-nature ecosystems;
- Promote an Alpine-wide integrated sustainable forest management approach.
