The high altitude watersheds, water-producing areas on which the downstream regions largely depend, are also the first victims of climate change. Adaptation strategies must be developed in coordination with local policies and actors in order to guarantee a rational use of water resources now and in the future, and a good functional state of alpine rivers. Building on the work already produced by the Water Management Platform of the Alpine Convention and the Alpine Climate Target System 2050 prepared by the Alpine Climate Board, this conference aims at proposing concrete pathways for future action, involving the Alpine Convention and all other relevant stakeholders in the Alps.
