Socially Fair Options for a Climate Neutral Transformation of Housing and Mobility in Austria - Teilprojekt H991 (TransFair-AT_H991)
Funded by
Klima- und Energiefonds, Leopold-Ungar-Platz 2 / Stiege 1 / 4.OG / Top 142, 1190 Wien, Austria
In the project TransFair-AT, we will comprehensively analyse the impacts on different household types of various policy instruments for decarbonising passenger transport and housing. Moreover, we will develop measures to compensate particularly vulnerable groups ensuring an inclusive and socially fair decarbonisation of the housing and mobility sector by 2040. The overarching objectives of TransFair-AT are
(1) to provide comprehensive and innovative model-based analyses of the economic incidence and social impacts of a complete decarbonisation of the sectors residential buildings and passenger transport in Austria by 2040; and
(2) to develop targeted compensation mechanisms to mitigate burdens of these climate policies for particularly vulnerable groups while ensuring the consistency of these compensation mechanisms with full decarbonisation.
