CIRCLE-2 MOUNTain Mid-Term Meeting - Presentations now available

2012-04-09
The CIRCLE-2 MOUNTain Mid-Term Meeting has successfully been held in Innsbruck, Austria. Surrounded by a nice alpine panorama, the four funded CIRCLE-2 MOUNTain projects presented their Mid-Term Results in front of an audience of leading known experts in the field of climate change related risks and adaptation in the mountain areas.

In smaller working groups especially the areas of involvement of stakeholders, adaptation measures and communication strategies were discussed and good practices shared. Especially the co-production of research with stakeholders, adaptation as a joint learning process that is based on trust and confidence were assessed in more detail.
