Alpine rivers supply more than 170 millions of people with water. Climate change is going to reduce this water availability in the Alps and also in other regions. Water demand will rise as well as the competition between different stakeholder groups. In the 31-page compact CIPRA presents reports showing the effects from climate change to water utility, as well as political instruments and good practice examples.

Through the project “cc.alps” CIPRA investigates climate measures in the Alps. CIPRA brings together climate protection and climate adaptation activities in the Alps (hereinafter these activities are defined as climate measures) and analyses what effects these climate measures have on the environment, economy and society. The “CIPRA compact” collection within cc.alps features various theme books that deal critically with climate measures in the Alps. The collection comprises the field of activity: energy, building and renovating, energy self-sufficient regions, spatial planning, traffic, tourism, nature hazards, nature protection, agriculture, forestry and water.
