In December 2001 the Austrian Parliament adopted the Austrian Security and Defence Doctrine. According to this doctrine the existing Comprehensive National Defence programme shall be developed into a system of Comprehensive Security Provision focusing on the new risk and threats. A modern and forward looking security shall seek to prevent emerging risks and threats through preventive action.
The government shall ensuring co-operation between federal and provincial civil defence authorities as well as with the local operational units on the basis of existing legal provisions (Governmental disaster Protection Management). Training and
exchange of information at national and international level shall be intensified, especially to prevent and fight terrorism, international organised crime and illegal migration on the one hand, and with a view to comprehensive disaster protection on the other hand. Public information on self-protection measures shall be improved, and
warning systems shall be optimised.
