Climate change affects the Alpine Space in many ways: the delicate mountain ecosystem is altered, new weather-related risks arise, local economic opportunities change. GoApply tackled the key challenges of adaptation governance by mapping and comparing existing governance approaches, good practices and innovations to include climate adaptation into sectoral policies and to set-up effective formats of stakeholder interaction. This body of knowledge enables public and non-governmental actors to improve, re-define and better implement their adaptation governance.
