Research topics: Measuring climate mitigation measures in Bavaria

Evaluating the effectiveness of climate mitigation measures is becoming increasingly important. In view of the urgency of the climate crisis, many states have initiated programmes to evaluate their efforts in climate mitigation. However, practical evaluation systems are still lacking.


Projects: Center for Climate Resilience


Bavaria has set itself the goal of becoming climate neutral by 2040. In order to achieve this goal, a climate mitigation programme with more than 140 measures has been set up in 2022. BayCliMit supports the effective implementation of this package of measures by developing a flexible indicator system that ensures a comprehensive assessment of the direct and indirect climate impacts of the individual measures and enables dynamic monitoring. A particular focus is the quantification of CO2 savings. The project, which is based at the Centre for Climate Resilience at the University Augsburg, is carried out in close cooperation between the working groups "Energy Research", "Water and Soil Resources Research", "Regional Climate and Hydrology" and "Controlling" at the University Augsburg.
