ADAPTATION AT ALTITUDE

Mountains at the frontline of climate change

Mountains feature some of the clearest indications of climate change: rising temperatures, melting glaciers and changing precipitation patterns are disrupting water flows and affecting ecosystems, creating and worsening natural hazards and threatening livelihoods and communities both within the mountains and downstream.

TAKING ACTION IN THE MOUNTAINS

Our objective

The Adaptation at Altitude programme seeks to increase the resilience and adaptive capacity of mountain communities and ecosystems to climate change.

SHARING KNOWLEDGE FOR THE MOUNTAINS

Supporting a community of practice

The Adaptation at Altitude programme hosts the Climate Change Adaptation in Mountains theme on weADAPT - a place where all are welcome to share their knowledge, and learn from and connect with others working on climate change adaptation in mountains.

Partners

Adaptation at Altitude is a collaborative programme launched and co-supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
