Alpine Convention

Description:

The Alpine Convention is the international treaty signed by the eight Alpine countries and the European Union for the sustainable development and the protection of the Alps. It entered into force in 1995. The Contracting Parties adopted in 2006 a Declaration on Climate Change, complemented in 2009 by an Action Plan with specific strategic measures and best practice examples. Taking action on climate change – both adaptation and mitigation – is one of the six priorities of the Multi-Annual Work Programme of the Alpine Convention in 2017-2022. In 2017, the Alpine Climate Board was established to bundle relevant climate change activities carried out within the framework of the Alpine Convention.
