Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change

An internationally oriented research center at the University of Graz, the Wegener Center focuses on monitoring, analysis, modeling, and prediction of climate and environmental change, and includes the human dimensions of such changes.

IIASA has worked with the Wegener Center in the following areas:

Zero Emissions from Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use in the Eisenwurzen and Beyond (ZEAFOLU)

The target of 2°C, and even more so, the ambitious 1.5°C target, which are fundamental climate protection goals of the 2015 Paris agreement, require a massive reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions until 2050 and complete decarbonization by 2100. A transition to a low-carbon society will necessitate a fundamental reorganization of the current societal metabolism, that is, the flow of material and energy associated with socioeconomic activities. Such a transformation calls for a re-evaluation of land use management practices to achieve zero emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use (ZEAFOLU). More

COIN: Assessing Costs of Climate Change in Austria

The core objective of COIN (Cost of Inaction) is to assess costs of climate change for public and private budgets in Austria (i.e. damage costs with presently agreed mitigation measures but without adaptation measures) and to scope out information where full assessment is not yet possible. More
