CLISP aims at building a substantial basis for climate-proof, sustainable territorial development in the Alpine Space by providing the following key outputs:
- Knowledge base, recommendations and policy options for climate-proof spatial planning strategies on transnational, national and regional level.
- Practice-oriented, transferable framework for assessing regional spatial vulnerability to climate change (vulnerability concept, indicators, methodologies, user guidelines, glossary of key terms, knowledge base for transfer to other regions and scales).
- Knowledge of spatial key vulnerabilities of model regions (maps, profiles, descriptive reports).
- Operational concept to evaluate the 'climate change fitness' of spatial planning systems' and a transferable self-evaluation tool for Alpine regions and municipalities.
- In-depth knowledge on strengths and weaknesses of spatial planning systems regarding their climate-proofness and adaptation capacities, best practice examples and set of enhancement options.
- Guidelines and decision support for climate-related risk communication and risk governance and supporting communication tools
- Knowledge on strengths and weaknesses of regional risk management systems and recommendations for improving risk governance frameworks
- Improved cooperation and knowledge exchange among planning experts and authorities.
- Better awareness of policy- and decision-makers, authorities, stakeholders and the public on climate-related risks and higher preparedness for adaptation.
