The Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention has been collecting
different experiences over the last years concerning the implementation of the
Alpine Convention. They relate to sustainable development and to the
thematic fields of work of the Convention. The Parties expressed in March
2009 the wish to start collecting good practices specifically on the climate
change issue, and build a database on this urgent problem. This page intends
to respond to that requirement in order to divulgate the best practices known
by the Permanent Secretariat among all the relevant actors in the Alpine
Space. You can find them in the general DATABASE of the Alpine

This page is also constructed in a way to be an interactive channel of
communication, and local, regional actors are welcome to share their
experiences by submitting their good practices HERE.
