Launch of the French Presidency of EUSALP 2020

Together for a greener Alpine region

The European Union Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) brings together seven countries and almost 50 regions. For these countries, the Alps, including their foothills and lowland areas, are both a distinct advantage and a particular challenge. Highly vulnerable to the consequences of climate change, the Alpine region needs answers quickly. The EUSALP encourages innovative approaches to the specific needs of mountain regions in terms of tourism, biodiversity, agriculture, mobility and energy (among others). Join us at the launch of the French Presidency to explore our shared ambitions.
