Fifth Water Conference Selected Presentations on Impacts of Climate Change on Alpine Regions

As any two years, the Alpine Convention organised the a "Water Conference" to assess the results of the Water Platform, which I had the honour to head in 2013-2014.

The fifth Water Conference was entitled: "Water in the Alps - and beyond; Adapting alpine and mountain river basins to climate change".
The event is going to be jointly promoted and developed by the Alpine Convention and the UNECE Water Convention, in order to favour the creation of synergies and the exchange of experiences (i.e. among the Alpine territory, the Carpathians, the Caucasus, Central Asia,...).

The 5th Water Conference is intended to provide to a wide audience of experts, administrators, practitioners and stakeholders the state of the art, the best practices and the main findings about adaptation to climate change in the mountain trans-boundary river basins.
Different panels of experts will illustrate the main results of the last years of activities in the respective conventions.
Furthermore, updated high-level information on climate change and adaptation strategies will be provided, together with the results of some relevant projects of European Territorial Cooperation on the issues.

Finally, a special focus will be devoted to the implementation of the measures of flood management, in the EU flood directive.

The whole set of presentations given during the conference can be found here. However, I would like to bring to attention a few outstanding, related to the impacts of climate change on the Water Cycle:
