CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

Austria has a temperate and alpine climate. While it is not under immediate threat from natural disasters induced by climate change, the topic of how to deal with climate change is high on the public agenda. Austria has already felt the effects of the warming of the planet, as the last century has seen an average temperature rise of more than 1°C. The summer of 2017, saw an increase in extreme weather events such as heat, floods and mudslides which may start to increase in the coming years. A situation has developed that adaptation efforts are necessary now and even more so in the future.

The predicted steady increase in average temperature is expected to increase the stress in animal husbandry, which may lead to poorer growth rates or deficiencies. This will especially felt in the Alpine regions, which, as well as being a key economic sector with regards to agriculture, is the centre of the lucrative winter tourism season.

The Austrian Alps generally have a higher vulnerability than other tourism areas (such as Alpine summer tourism and urban tourism) because of the inevitability of snowmelt connected with rising temperatures. Snow melting will be occurring earlier in the season at higher and higher altitudes, with the glaciers most at risk. From 1850 to 1980 glaciers in the Alps lost approximately 30-40% of their area and one half of their mass, and from 1980 until 1995 another 10-20% of the remaining ice has been lost.

The alpine regions are of particular importance for Austria, as early as 1991 saw the proliferation of the Alpine Convention, which set to deal comprehensively with the protection and sustainable development of the sensitive alpine space. The Climate Change Act (Klimaschutzgesetz, KSG), enacted in 2011, set emission ceilings for a total of six sectors, targeting; energy and industry; transport; buildings; agriculture; waste management and fluorinated gases. This protocol defines rules on the development and implementation of effective climate mitigation measures outside the EU emissions trading scheme. This makes it one of the major pillars of Austria's climate change policy up to 2020.
