PATCH:ES analyses private adaptation in Austria – its extent, main actors and drivers and potential effects to relief public budgets, but also as source of maladaptation in terms of adverse external effects and contradictions to federal policies. PATCH:ES reveals the dynamics and trade-offs for private adaptation along three test case studies (agriculture, tourism, and private households) and derives recommendations for good governance synchronizing private adaptation with governmental efforts.
