Title Translation: The Economics of Climate Change – integrated economic evaluation of climate change adaptation instruments
What economic costs could the impacts of climate change have for Germany? And which are adequate political instruments for public authorities to support climate change adaptation measures? A study undertaken by adelphi and the Centre for European Economic Research focuses on these two questions. On behalf of the German Federal Environment Office the authors forecast, inter alia, the costs of climate change at the district level, assess potential political instruments such as construction bans in flood-prone areas, and discuss the individual obstacles to climate change adaption.
