Climate change impact management: analyzing and developing target group-appropriate climate adaptation instruments and policy recommendations
In the course of climate change and the respectively expected impacts, the pressure for foresighted climate change adaptation is growing in Germany. However, with exception of climate mitigation and specialized regulations, climate change adaptation has barely found its way into legal instruments so far. Still, the regulatory mainstreaming of climate change adaptation poses challenges for legislation, which are rooted in the characteristics of the policy field. The project therefore investigates a possible legal framework for climate adaptation.
