On 17 September 2014 the first Austrian Assessment Report on Climate Change was published. Over the course of a three-year process, Austrian scientists have produced an assessment report on climate change in Austria following the model of the IPCC Assessment Reports. In this extensive work, more than 200 scientists depict the state of knowledge on climate change in Austria and its impacts, mitigation and adaptation strategies, as well as associated known political, economic and social issues.
The Austrian Climate Research Program (ACRP) of the Klima- und Energiefonds (Climate and Energy Fund) has enabled this work by financing the coordinating activities and material costs. The work has been carried out gratuitously by the researchers.
Stefan Kienberger contributed as lead author to the chapter 'Band 3: Klimawandel in Österreich: Vermeidung und Anpassung. Kapitel 1: Emissionsminderung und Anpassung an den Klimawandel'
