What is Clim-ATIC?
Final and intermediate objectives
Activities in regions:
Project activities in Sweden
1. Åre Municipality with Åreföretagarna (Åre local business organisation).
2. Lycksele Municipality with local forest owners.
1. Adaptation within Destination Åre to changing travel patterns caused by climate change
In order to face the increased demands within the tourism industry on climate friendly transportation as well as securing travels to remote tourist destinations in the future, Åre local business organisation and the municipality of Åre cooperate in creating sustainable travel patters within Destination ÅRE. Developing internal carrier routes within the destination ÅRE will be part of the project.
2. Adapting a local woodland management plan (WMP) to the impacts of climate change
The project will bring together the experience of local woodland owners and the knowledge of researcher through adapting a local WMP to the impacts of climate change. We will use a computerized tool developed in a research project when presenting our results at the Forest Museum in Lycksele in an exhibition during the summer of 2010.Regional lead partner:
