An assessment of climate change in Austria is proposed that has a number of related objectives that include (1) compilation and integration of up-to-date knowledge and expertise on climate change and possible response strategies in Austria; (2) increasing the scientific robustness of scientific findings by integrating those derived from different research approaches and methods and conducting independent peer-review of the APCC; (3) contributing to informed societal decision making on climate change; (4) providing policy-relevant technical support for response strategies, implementation of national commitments and positioning within the European Union and other international and global climate-related initiatives; and (5) to identify knowledge gaps for future research and thereby advance an Austrian climate research agenda, scientific community building and develop a comprehensive literature and databases.
