Bavarian Climate Report 2021

2021-02-25

The second edition of the Bavarian Climate Report (release Dec 2020) was published by the Bavarian State Ministry for the Environment and Consumer Protection and analyses how climate change affects Bavaria in five chapters. The report predicts a maximum increase in mean temperature of 3.8°C by 2100 compared to the 1971-2000 period.

In addition to anthropogenic climate change and future heat waves, attention will also be paid to Bavaria's water supply. In this context, the Bavarian Climate Research Network (bayklif), its objectives and the associated collaborative projects, will be presented. The collaborative research project "AquaKlif", in which some BayCEER members are involved, also presents its research focus in the "Research Exkursion" section. Furthermore, measures and adaptations for a climate-neutral Bavaria by 2050 at the latest are presented with the Climate Package II. Here, the focus is on renewable energies, peatland protection as well as municipal and international climate protection. The report can be downloaded on the Bavarian State Ministry for the Environment and Consumer Protection website and contains an English summary.
