Cultural and natural attractions are at the heart of the Lower Austrian tourism offer. However, climate change has an impact on their appeal and offered experiences.
Therefore, the project "ClimATT II" will deal with the following questions: In which way has climate change an impact on tourism attractions in Lower Austria? What are the challenges and opportunities for different regions and what are the economic consequences? What are possible measures to mitigate consequences of climate change? How have needs and desires of visitors changed due to climate change and what are the requirements for the tourism industry?
In two major studies both supply and demand side will be investigated. The aim of the project is not only to get an in-depth understanding of the impact of climate change on tourism attractions in Lower Austria but also to examine possiblilities as to how tourism offers can be adapted in order to stay attractive and competitive in the future.
The project "ClimATT II" is conducted by IMC University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with BOKU University in Vienna until the end of 2023 and is fundet by the FTI-fund for "Environment, climate and resources" from the Federal Government of Lower Austria.
