Publication EEA Signals 2010 - Biodiversity, climate change and you
Signals takes us on a journey, following the course of water from the glaciers of the Alps to the permafrost of the Arctic and the delta of the Ganges. We travel to familiar and far-flung places, looking at how we can rebuild our relationships with the crucial elements of everyday life— water, soil, air — and the animals and plants that make up the tapestry of life on Earth.

Publication Regional climate change and adaptation — The Alps facing the challenge of changing water resources
Drawing on the most recent knowledge of climate change impacts in the Alps and experiences across the region, this report analyses the risks that climate change presents to the region's water supply and quality, identifying needs, constraints, opportunities, policy levers and options for adaptation. It extracts policy guidance on adaptation practice and aims to assist regional and local stakeholders in developing robust adaptation strategies. The focus of the report is on water resources and related adaptation, rather than water-related extreme events like floods, avalanches, landslides or mudflows, which are already well covered by existing studies of climate change impacts in the Alps.

Figure PostScript document Erosion rate in the Alps
The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) was applied to the whole alpine area. The model calculates annual soil loss (t ha-1 yr-1) based on Rainfall Erosivity Factor (MJ mm ha-1 h-1 yr, Soil Erodibility Factor (t ha h ha-1 MJ-1 mm-1, Slope length Factor (dimensionless), Slope Factor (dimensionless), Cover Management Factor (dimensionless), Human Practices aimed at erosion control. The output grid cell is 100

The Alpine region and its key environmental challenges
The Alpine region is home to sensitive ecosystems and landscapes that are the result of a millenary interaction between natural systems and human activities. The region faces the challenge of protecting its environment while also meeting the socio-economic aspirations of local populations. These challenges at local level are exacerbated by threats posed by global warming and a rapidly evolving world economy. A sustainable balance can actually be achieved in the region through more effective spatial planning and better management of natural resources.
