Federal Climate Change Law
Given the increasing importance of climate change, a number of related legislative activities in Germany have occurred. However the resulting climate change law is incomplete and not always coherent. On behalf of the Federal Environmental Agency, Ecologic Institute is developing an ambitious and consistent model for the federal climate change law. Ecologic is cooperating with Professor Michael Rodi from the University of Greifswald.
First, the development of such a model will demand comprehensive analysis of Germany´s current climate change law. Second, Ecologic Institute and Professor Rodi will submit proposals for further development of this new legal realm. These proposals will be connected with one another in order to create a coherent concept. The interim results of this legal study will be discussed among a panel of experts.
