On 27 May 2021, Euromontana held its third Smart Mountains: webinar “Climate Adaptation – What opportunities for mountain businesses?”. This webinar belongs to a series of virtual events that Euromontana is organising to fuel the discussion for the next Euromontana Mountain Convention, that will take place on 11-12-13 October 2022, in the Sila natural park and biosphere reserve, Italy.

This webinar gave the floor to speakers from the Commission’s Directorate-General on Climate Action, the EIT Climate and Knowledge and Innovation Community, and three concrete cases showcasing how mountain businesses can adapt to climate change in Europe.

The speakers highlighted how existing policies, projects and good practices offer multiple opportunities for fostering climate adaptation of the mountain economy, with a particular attention to the tourism, agriculture and forestry sectors.

Katharina Lapin presented the aims of the ALPTREES project in her talk.
