SPATIAL PLANNING

CHALLENGES & TARGETS

Due to limited areas for permanent settlement, specific transport and mobility needs as well as specific demographic challenges, spatial planning in the Alps already is an important cross-cutting policy field. Supporting the transition towards climate-neutral and climate-resilient Alps now gives a new role to spatial planning: integrating mitigation and adaptation actions into all activities related to spatial planning would ensure an optimal starting-point for other sectoral activities and would avoid lock-in effects with respect to settlement and infrastructure development.

Targets:

Spatial planning systems and strategies at transnational, national and regional level (legal and institutional framework, instruments, procedures including in cross-border regions) give a strong priority to climate change.

Climate-related risk management systems with active risk communication activities are implemented. The preventive role of spatial planning in protection against climate-driven natural hazards is strengthened.
