The Pyrenees is a mountain bioregion particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Seven regional climate change policies from three countries converge in this territory: two EU Member States and one third country. Most of these policies do not take into account two differential facts;

  • the mountainous nature of the territory  
  • the cross-border approach. 

Therefore, there is a need to define a cross-border climate change strategy for the whole of this mountain territory.

At the end of 2018, the Pyrenean Strategy of the CTP was approved, as a result of more than 2 years of reflection and consultation. This strategy clearly includes climate change as one of the main threats affecting all Pyrenean territories - Climate Change Pyrenean Strategy CCPS (More info)


AT LIFE CC PYRÈNÈES is a project whose main objective is to prepare the application for an integrated LIFE project on Climate Change in the Pyrenees by means of:

  • the search for convergence and synergies between the policies of the Pyrenean territories (horizontal coordination)
  • coherence with national and European climate change policies (vertical coordination)
  • The establishment of a consultation and deliberation process with all pyrenean territories (France, Spain and Andorra) and all pyrenean actors involved in climate change adaptation
  • formalisation in a proposal that takes into account the particularities of the Pyrenees as a mountain territory, and therefore particularly sensitive to the impacts of climate change in both its socio-economic (natural risks, population, tourism, agro-pastoralism and energy) and biophysical (flora, fauna, forests, sensitive high mountain ecosystems and water resources) aspects
  • Capitalising on the results of other current and previous projects in which the OPCC has been involved.


Outstanding actions:

  • Development of a participatory process to validate and complete the Pyrenean Climate Change Strategy
  • Deliberation and consultation process for the subsequent definition of the Operational Plan to implement the CCPS.
  • Preparation of an application for an integrated LIFE project to enable the application and implementation of the Pyrenean Climate Change Strategy through the Operational Plan.
