In 2014, the first comprehensive National Assessment Report (AAR14) was published. Since its publication, many things have changed. Therefore, the second Assessment Report on Climate Change for Austria (AAR2) is currently being prepared.

The aim of the AAR2 is to assess the state of knowledge on climate change in Austria and its consequences, as well as to identify mitigation potentials and strategies, adaptation options and transformation pathways. Gaps in knowledge are to be closed in the sense of a climate-neutral society. The report is to be published in summer 2025. The project is based on the processes of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and is relevant for the implementation of the 13 SDG targets.

The AAR2 Co-Chairs Daniel Huppmann (IIASA), Margreth Keiler (UIBK), Keywan Riahi (IIASA), Harald Rieder (BOKU) are coordinating the extensive project and will work together with more than 120 scientists on the new, comprehensive climate report for Austria over the next three years.

This project is funded by the Climate and Energy Fund as part of the 14th Austrian Climate Research Programme.
