Global impacts of climate change — such as losses in agricultural yields, sea level rise, changes in water availability or in labor productivity — can affect Austria via international trade. These global impacts of climate change pose a potential risk to Austria’s economy. The goal of COIN-INT is therefore to assess the costs of climate change transmitted by international trade to Austria and thereby to complement the national cost of inaction estimate of the COIN project.

The project COIN-INT is funded by the Climate and Energy Fund, 9th Call of the Austrian Climate Research Program (ACRP), project number KR16AC0K13372.
