Climate change adaptation toolkit in the Alpine space

May 5, 2021

The Smart Altitude project, co-financed by the Interreg Alpine Space programme, aimed at increasing the resilience of mountain areas by enabling and accelerating the implementation of low-carbon policies in winter tourism regions and demonstrating the efficiency of a step-by-step decision support tool for energy transition.

The Project ran from June 2018 to April 2021 and was carried out by 10 partners from six countries in the Alpine Space (Austria, France, Italy, Germany, Slovenia, and Switzerland).

The final report provides a brief overview of the main outcomes and the lessons learned, looking at options to act, experience of the four Living Labs, replication pathways and recommendations.

The Smart Altitude Toolkit developed by the project, is a six-steps approach to help ski resort operators and policy-makers in planning, optimising and implementing adaptation and mitigation strategies to climate change.

The project’s final conference, Smart mountains for tomorrow is taking place on 10 and 11 May 2021.
