Alpstar: towards carbon neutral Alps

  1. 1. Barbara Simonič Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment
  2. 2. Climate Change and the Alps… – More vulnerable than other regions – Poor performance on emission reduction in transport – Action Plan on Climate Change in the Alps, Alpine Conference 2009 – Alpine Space Programme – many projects on mitigation and adaptation ALPSTAR PROJECT OBJECTIVE: – to encourage implementation of Climate Action Plan through multiplication of best practice measures on regional and local level
  3. 3. MAKE BEST PRACTICE MINIMUM STANDARD
  4. 4. Main results so far…to be widely used! • Good practice transfer platform http://alpstar-project.eu/best- practice-plateform/ • Practical guidelines in preparation and implementation of strategies and action plans PUBLICATIONS Alpstar Guideline: Toward carbon neutral Alps in English, French, German and Italian • Networks of stakeholders • Capacity building activities and seminars… Networks of 12 pilot regions, ALPSTAR Policy board, … next one: Alpine dialogue on energy transition, Lucerne, CH, 23-24/10
  5. 5. • 12 implemented good practice measures - pilot actions • 12 cross-sectoral strategies or action plans toward carbon neutrality in pilots regions
  6. 6. Looking for synergies… Trade-offs / synergies Mitigation affecting adaptation Adaptation affecting mitigation Management of resources Planning & IA Rising level of adaptive and mitigative capacity synergies adaptationmitigation
  7. 7. Synergies & trade-offs – Resource efficiency (energy, water, land, forssts…) – Land and water management – Strategic and urban planning – Assessment of projects in terms of both costs &benefits for A & M (social cost of carbon, climate impacts…) – Allocation of funds – Perception and legal implications of liability for cc impacts Adaptive and mitigative capacities are driven by similar sets of factors (level of economic development, belief systems and cultural values, range of technological options and policy instruments, structure of institutions, availability & distribution of resources, d-m processes…)
  8. 8. Overcoming barriers for synergies – Lack of knowledge and consideration of both A&M  Establish a framework for action (strategy/action plan) – Difficulties in reconciling the interest of energy and other policy goals (e.g. nature and environmental protection)  Capitalise on existing good practices (platform) – Belief systems & cultural values  base on data (regional analysis of emissions), connect with partners in Europe and with actors in local communities (regional networks), make sure the results are being taken on board by policy-makers (Policy Board)
