The project estimates in six scenarios the impacts of climate change and silvicultural adaptation measures on the significant GHG balance of the Austrian forests and related wood products/fuels (incl. avoided emissions from substitute products/fuels) until 2150. In addition, an analysis of these impacts on the Austrian forest and wood industry sector (the biggest economic sector in Austria) will be carried out (e.g. quantity and quality of wood delivery, needed technical adaptations). The socio-economic part of the project will provide an analysis and proposals for modifying the po-litical, legal and societal framework conditions in Austria for forest management and wood product use towards a GHG-optimised use. The results of the project are basic for needed societal transformations and adaptations to reach the Paris Agreement targets of a balance between GHG emissions and removals post 2050 and will identify needed adaptation measures in the Austrian wood industry due to climate change impacts and silvicultural consequences in the Austrian forests.
