Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory (OPCC)

Description

The purpose of Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory is to follow and understand the climate evolution in the Pyrenees with the aim of limiting the impacts and adapting to its effects by defining appropriate adaptation strategies for socio-economic sectors and the most fragile natural areas. More broadly, its approach seeks to develop the visibility of the Pyrenees on both a European and international level in the fields of observation and adaptation to climate change. It also aims to integrate the Observatory into the European networks linked to the activities of the Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory. Five main objectives of the Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory: Objective 1: Pool existing knowledge on the impact of climate change in the Pyrenees and identify the new knowledge to capitalize. Objective 2: Analyse the vulnerability of natural environments to climate change and study its socio-economic impact, especially on the local population. Objective 3: Prepare recommendations and operational advice for a better adaptation of economic activities and natural environments by promoting the harmonious development of the mountains and its population. Objective 4: Inform society and socio-economic actors in an educational manner Objective 5: Contribute to developing European and international visibility of the Pyrenees regarding observation and adaptation to climate change and support the Observatory’s European Network.
