Analysis of the social dimensions of climate change impacts and development of correspondingly differentiated policy instruments
Climate change has not only ecological and economic effects, but also social effects. The social dimensions of adaptation to climate change are to be taken into account in German adaptation policy. The aim of the research project is to develop policy recommendations that support the socially just design of adaptation to climate change in Germany. The results of the project should clarify how the national adaptation strategy and its instruments should be differentiated according to social aspects.
