AG8 Storytelling video
The main challenges facing the Alpine region in improving the management of natural hazards and climate change are raising awareness on a local level, and involving people to handle natural hazards and climate change effects together. One other challenge to consider is that due to climate change, the probability of natural hazards increases. Society has to recognize the risk and find a level of acceptance.
Action Group 8, coordinated by Austria and Bavaria, has been working mainly on concepts that enhance the implementation of risk governance and climate change adaption by KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER, working on participation, awareness-raising and community involvement. Within this perspective, the role of public authorities is extremely relevant as is working with different groups of society.
Natural hazards and climate change do not stop at any borders, hence the need for being proactive, well informed and effectively coordinated in order to act promptly, collectively and transnationally.
