CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

The country has the luck of conserving preciously climate data since the mid 18th century (before the French Revolution!). This has allowed them to observe, without the shadow of a doubt, a steep increase in temperatures. The average annual temperature has seen an increase of around 2°C since 1864, about twice as fast as the European average.

It has, however, implemented strong measures to limit its emissions and Human impact over its pristine mountain ranges and lush valleys. This topography makes it a particularly fragile ecosystem. For example, trucks transiting through Switzerland are placed on trans-country trains to limit the impact of traffic on the air quality of this hilly landscape. 

Due to the variability of altitude and natural conditions, Switzerland has a very high biodiversity rate, with endemic species existing only on certain peaks or in certain valleys. It is estimated that more than 50,000 species of plant are found on this territory the size of Taiwan or the Dominican Republic. 

As part of all major international covenants on conservation and biodiversity, Switzerland is a model of well-managed natural areas and control of human impacts.
