Understanding climate evolution in the Pyrenees for a collective work on adaptation in the Pyrenees

  1. 1. UNDERSTANDING CLIMATE EVOLUTION IN THE PYRENEES FOR A COLLECTIVE WORK ON ADAPTATION CIRCLE 2 MOUNTAIN Final Meeting Barcelona, 26-27 September 2013 Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory (OPCC) P Y R E N E E S
  2. 2. About the Pyrenees Working Community (CTP) Eight political entities from three states: • France (Aquitaine, Midi-Pyrénées, Languedoc- Roussillon) • Spain (Catalunya, Aragón, Navarra, Euskadi) • Principat d'Andorra
  3. 3.  IPCC 2007 report -> mountainous areas particularly sensitive to climate change.  Climate change impacts natural systems and socio-economic sectors.  Climate change has no borders Why cross-border cooperation and climate change is a priority to the Pyrenees Working Community (CTP)? -> CTP launched the Pyrenees Climate Change Observatory (OPCC) in 2010. -> First actions of OPCC: A project supported by European program POCTEFA 2011-2013 (65% ERDF)
  4. 4. OPCC’s mission: to interpret and disseminate scientific knowledge, and to support decision-making on climate change in the Pyrenees. OPCC’s main goal: to monitor and understand climate evolution in the Pyrenees with the aim of becoming less vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and adapting to its effects OPCC's actions (2012-may 2014) Climate, Biodiversity, Forests and Natural Hazards, Water, Remote Sensing, Geoportal and Adaptation -> Transboundary network of stakeholders -> working on common methodologies and indicators for the Pyrenees
  5. 5. Climate action in the OPCC's project: Development of a unique database based on precipitation, temperature -> Common indicators to all territories of the Pyrenees. Biodiversity action in the OPCC's project: Network monitoring of species and populations of the vascular flora of the Pyrenees to detect the impact of climate change -> Developement a common Atlas of Flora in the Pyrenees + Monitor community Salix herbaceae Forests and Natural Hazards in the OPCC's project: Understanding the role of forest in the Pyrenees against the impacts of climate change and the increased risk of natural hazards and their capacity of adaptation in a changing climate Water in the OPCC's project: Apply knowledge of the impact of climate change on water resources. Develop methodologies to integrate climate change in the Drought Management Plan.
  6. 6. Remote Sensing in OPCC's project: vegetation, snow and soil occupation. Geoportal in OPCC's project: common transboundary shared space for information on climate change in the Pyrenees:www.opcc-ctp.org Adaptation action in OPCC's project: Diagnosing the Pyrenees: impacts and vulnerability to climate change. Understand and analyze adaptation initiatives in the territory. Coordination Project coordination among partners, communication and dissemination of the project through website, organizing the final event of the project .
  7. 7. 7 “Adaptation to climate change in the Pyrenees” PHASE 1 : PYRENEES Common diagnosis of the Pyrenees and adaptation experiences Identify climate change impacts in the Pyrenees for a first approach on vulnerability analysis Identify and analyze existing adaptation initiatives in the Pyrenees PHASE 2 : EUROPEAN MOUNTAINS Knowledge transfer of European experiences on adaptation Identify and analyze existing adaptation initiatives of other European mountain areas Elaborate useful documentation of reference for Pyrenean stakeholders that support them in their adaptation planning to climate change May 2013,Toulouse (Midi Pyrénées)
  8. 8. 8 “Adaptation to climate change in the Pyrenees” A study about vulnerability: Characteristics of the Pyrenees; observed and expected impacts of climate change Date base with 85 Pyrenean adaptation initiatives and 18 European adaptation initiatives, classified and analyzed 2 publications For further information: www.opcc-ctp.org

  16. 16. Adaptation study: Key conclusions • Adaptation is about integration of climate change into current practice and not limited to specific adaptation measures per se. This has implications as to the adaptation approach to be followed at local level: -Whether to approach stakeholders by inviting them to develop an adaptation strategy with a programme of measures OR -Support or incentive them to include the factor “climate” into their existing decision making framework. • The Pyrenees have started to adapt in comparable ways to other mountain areas in the EU with most efforts focused on knowledge building. • There is a key role for public institutions to help stakeholders to take into account the climate change in particular through knowledge development and diffusion.
  17. 17. Climate action: Development of a unique database of high quality climate series based on precipitation, temperature, and the definition of common indicators for the Pyrenees
