Alpine Climate Board

Chair: Austria 

The Alpine Climate Board (ACB), 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.

The ACB is supporting the establishment of a strong Alpine community to take on the implementation pathways through a range of exchange, promotion, and monitoring activities. Within its 2023-2024 mandate, it is also setting a focus on promoting networks and cooperation between specific sectors to create and strengthen synergies and propose solutions to potential conflicts. The ACB is also furthering exchange and 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.
