Smart Altitude

Alpine winter tourism territories demonstrating an integrated framework for a low-carbon, high-impact and resilient future

Smart Altitude Decision-making Tree

This report describes the Smart Altitude Decision-Making Tree, designed as a comprehensive approach of parameters envisaged for the implementation of low-carbon interventions in alpine winter tourism areas. It starts with an overview of the impact of climate change in winter tourism territories, providing a literature review of climate adaptation and mitigation in these regions. The importance of achieving synergies between adaptation and mitigation is also highlighted. The Smart Altitude Decision-Making Tree is then reported graphically and described, as a step-by-step process to plan and implement low carbon measures in ski resorts.

The tool has been designed for ski resort operators, however engagement of policy makers and relevant stakeholders is essential to support these actions and are here mentioned referring to the links with specific project activities which will tackle these issues : A.T3.2 "Territorial implementation plan: maximizing low-carbon policy impacts", and A.T3.3. "Stakeholder engagement plan for attractive low-carbon territories".
