Our contribution describes inter- and trans-disciplinary learning processes within a project modelling the hydrological effects of combined future climate and land-use changes. Based on combined scenarios of climate and socio-economic change in an Alpine valley hydrological results show how an increase in the forested area reduces streamflow (as a measure of water availability) in the long term. The transdisciplinary research process allows local stakeholders to translate the hydrological modelling results into a concrete local climate change adaptation strategy. Scenarios with consistent storylines help stakeholders to visualize a desired future and to see their scope of influence. Especially in mountain areas, given the interdependencies of farming with forestry, tourism, and other economic sectors collective decisions on a communal level regarding land use are crucial.View Paper here.
