This CIPRA compact presents an overview of transport-related measures in the Alps to ameliorate climate change and promote adaptations to climate change. The second chapter explains CIPRA's key concerns: Without any change to our mobility behaviour, we will not attain the climate goals! On the one hand, automobile transport must become more expensive, and on the other, transport types benign to the environment must be promoted. Changed mobility behaviour will have a heavy impact on the economy and society. We need to face this challenge. The third chapter analyses and describes each of the relationships in detail. The fourth chapter presents a summary of the author's key findings and conclusions. The fifth chapter gives us an overview of exemplary climate-friendly transport measures in the Alps: klima:aktiv is a consultancy and financial assistance scheme of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management to reduce greenhouse emissions; Alpine Pearls is a network of up to now 21 holiday destinations that have committed themselves to the principle of soft mobility. Further examples are the CO2-neutral and car-free Styrian &"Alpine meadows&" and the transport management at Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta in the Italian province of Trento. These examples show us how it can be done and encourage others to do the same. Finally, chapter six presents a collection of literature and background information for further reading.
