Impact assessment of the German government’s Climate Action Plan 2050
Impact assessment on the ecological, social and economic impacts of the sectoral targets for 2030 of the German government’s Climate Action Plan 2050
Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)
Duration October 2017 – December 2018
The analyses focus on the classification of the very differing approaches with which the targets set for 2030 can be achieved. This classification should take into account ecological, economic, social and overarching political objectives (e.g. in the context of the European Union and its objectives and policies). As a novelty, the relevant environmental aspects are to be taken into account at least in part on the basis of monetarised variables.
