Tourism is closely related to climate variations, especially in mountain regions where, without snow it is not possible to ski and therefore are heavily dependent on snow precipitations.
But what are the expected effects of an increase in temperature? How could climate change affect the economic and social system of the Alpine space?
Climalptour project focuses on the Alpine space, where the effects of climate change could be stronger. Furthermore, the project considers winter tourism resorts as the focus of its studies.
The main objective of the project is to make Alpine centers an interesting destination in all seasons and to increase their potential even if snow is lacking. All the ClimAlpTour Partners are working together to find out concrete adaptation strategies that can be used by civil services and stakeholders to face this new situation and to go beyond the traditional vision of winter sports. Furthermore, Partners wish to raise the consciousness among allowing citizens, businessman and, above all, policymakers on the possible changes of the climate and to identify the most appropriate strategies and to act on a timely base and on valid information. The project will deliver a powerful computer- based tool able to provide to all interested parties customized adaptation strategies based on information referring to every specific site.
