Climate change in Switzerland: Indicators of driving forces, impact and response


Human activity is changing the climate, and indicators show that Switzerland is particularly hard hit by climate change. Using selected examples, this report describes Switzerland’s contribution to climate change (greenhouse gas emissions and their sources), the observed state of the climate and its expected future development, as well as the impacts of climate change on natural systems, society and the economy. It also presents the main policy responses and measures on emissions reduction and climate change adaptation.
