The project aims to provide concrete policy recommendations on the content of legal instruments at federal and state level in Germany. These policy recommendations should enable legislators to mainstream climate change adaptation into further appropriate legal instruments. The project also aims to derive potential federal activities for the Adaptation Action Plan IV (planned for 2024) and the basis for the 2024 Progress Report. The project focuses on those legal instruments that can be attested a particularly high effectiveness potential in the policy mix with regard to the implementation of climate change adaptation, i.e. through the enforcement of the legal instrument.
