A Climate Law for Europe

Making the Paris Agreement Real
The climate protection laws of countries, regions and cities have several things in common: legally binding reduction targets, emission budgets, verification systems and independent institutions. These characteristics are essential to effective climate change legislation and crucial to the implementation of the Paris Convention. However, current EU rules on climate change do not include many of these features. Therefore, the existing EU acquis is neither what countries and regions have adopted nor what full implementation of the Paris Agreement means. The paper is available for download.Read more

What Narratives have to do with Nijmegen's Room for the River Program and with Climate Services

The Netherlands: For centuries, the Dutch have erected dykes to protect the country from the water of the Rhine. Whenever the feeling prevailed that the protection was not adequate, the dykes were raised and modernized. However, for some time unusual things have been happening along many rivers in the Netherlands: more than thirty rivers are changing their course. As a result, new measures for flood control are being discussed, communicated and implemented in the whole country. How are these measures being developed? Which attempts are being pursued? Dr. Grit Martinez of Ecologic Institute is collecting narratives in order to create knowledge systems helping the design, utilization and uptake of future climate services.

Big Picture of the European Clean Energy Transition in 2030

February 2018 to October 2018

To provide a solid basis for decision-makers, the Ecologic Institute supports Agora Energiewende in developing a report that delivers a snapshot of how the EU’s energy system could like in 2030.
