Das Klimaschutzrecht des Bundes
In light of 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. Professor Michael Rodi from the University of Greifswald and Ecologic Institute analysed German federal climate change law and developed proposals for its advancement. The legal study on behalf of the Federal Environment Agency is available for download.
The proposals for the advancement of federal climate change law in particular comprise:
- Possible outlines of a Climate Protection Act
- Further considerations on the structure of climate change law
- Advancement of the legal bases for sustainable energy grids
- Federal requirements for municipal climate protection
- Agricultural land use
The interim results of this legal study were discussed on 30 August 2010 at a workshop among a panel of experts.
