Key Issues and Recommendations
The most important measure to be taken consists in a drastic reduction of greenhouse emissions all over the world. Even if this objective is reached, impacts will continue (delayed-action) and measures must be taken locally and regionally in the Alpine area:
- Adapted regional development
- Mapping of danger zones
- Monitoring and management of protection forests
- Technical protection measures like river restoration, protection of wetlands, nets against debris flows, etc.
- Set up of alarm systems, evacuation and immediate help.
