The Carpathians is one of the largest mountain areas of Europe and hosts exceptional biodiversity, including a large population of carnivores. Rising temperatures and changing precipitation are already causing challenges for Carpathian communities. Important industries in the region, such agriculture, tourism and forestry are particularly vulnerable to climate change. Furthermore, the changes also threatens valuable ecosystems and their continued provision of essential services, such as fresh water, biodiversity and carbon sequestration. Extreme weather events, such as floods and droughts are also projected to become even more problematic in the future. Increased regional cooperation in the region will strengthen adaptation efforts to meet shared challenges, in particular through the Carpathian Convention.

The Outlook is intended for a broad audience of experts and specialists, civil society representatives and donor organisations as well as decision makers from various sectors. It includes concrete recommendations for sectorial authorities, national governments and for regional cooperation.
