Alpine Climate Board
The Alpine Climate Board, established by the XIV Alpine Conference in 2016, steers and bundles climate action in the framework of the Alpine Convention. The Board drafted the Alpine Climate Target System 2050, adopted by the XV Alpine Conference in the frame of the Declaration of Innsbruck “Climate-neutral and climate-resilient Alps 2050”, and the Climate Action Plan 2.0, adopted by the XVI Alpine Conference. Implementation pathways, i.e. sequences of short- and medium-term measures in ten different sectors of activity, identified in close cooperation with the other Thematic Working Bodies of the Alpine Convention and further experts, are at the core of the Action Plan.
During its 2021-2022 mandate, through a range of exchange, promotion and monitoring activities, the Alpine Climate Board is supporting the establishment of a strong Alpine community to take on the implementation pathways. It is also furthering the cooperation on climate change issues between the Contracting Parties, Observers, Thematic Working Bodies as well as with relevant international organisations, other mountain regions and further partners.
