Lines of Evidence - Ongoing Efforts

2012-03-12

Ongoing lines of evidence supported by scientific information and literature review.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 2007), mountainous areas, already vulnerable to climate variability, will be mainly negatively affected from future impacts of climate change: glacier retreat, reduced snow cover and winter tourism, and extensive species losses.

The IPCC (2007) documented for the first time wide ranging impacts of changes in current climate such as "retreating glaciers, longer growing seasons, shifts of species ranges, and health impacts due to heat waves. The observed changes described above are consistent with those projected for future climate change" (Part WGII-AR4 of the IPCC document).

Finally the IPCC stressed the need to promptly conduct impact studies and implement "proactive climate change risk management adaptation plans."
