  • Digital library on past and future weather extremes across the AS including the webGIS platform and the tailored studies for the pilots - How to exploit the new knowledge and data for practice

    The digital library includes the webGIS platform, explanatory materials for its use (A 1.3), and a summary report on past and future trends in weather extremes across the AS (A 1.2), with additional details for the pilots (A 1.1). It is a unique easy-access point for the WP1-target-audience to uptake new Alpine-wide knowledge and contributes to the final O4.1. It includes data factsheets, guidelines for data interpretation and how-to tutorials to ease the uptake for impact/risk studies (WP2).

  • X-RISK-CC manual: A conceptual approach designed for risk managers/practitioners to support them in assessing and coping with the newly emerging risks of weather extremes in their area

    The manual bridges the gap between the newly created knowledge (WP1-2) and its straightforward exploitation by the WP3-target-audience to develop concrete risk management and adaptation options in a AS context (WP3). It guides them in understanding, assessing & coping with current and future compound impacts/risks in the pilot areas, using the information provided by the digital library (O1.1) and the risk pathways outlined in A 2.2. The manual is designed to be transferable across the AS.

  • Pilot action plans of tailored risk management measures to be developed in the pilot areas to cope with increasing weather extremes and their compound impacts/risks

    The action plans concretize O2.1 in the 5 pilots & engage the pilot PPs & the WP3-target-audience to implement measures and developed actions. O3.2 also outlines further steps needed to manage risks of increasingly emerging weather extremes. The action plans contain background information, the current status of each pilot, reasoning and design criteria of developed measures as well as an overview of the next steps to ensure their long-term implementation.

  • Two-tier digital sourcebook

    The two-tier digital sourcebook synthetizes the WP4 outcomes & makes them available to policy makers and practitioners across the AS. It includes a synthesis section with transalpine risk-management gaps & corresponding priorities for coping with emerging extremes & compound risks (1st tier). The 2nd tier provides transferable guidelines for risk management practice & strategic policy options to integrate the new knowledge on weather extremes & compound risks into DRR/CCA across the AS.
