Klima

Wir stehen vor zwei großen Klima-Herausforderungen. Erstens: Unbewältigbare Ausmaße des Klimawandels zu vermeiden - durch Klimaschutz. Zweitens: Unvermeidbare Auswirkungen des Klimawandels zu bewältigen - durch Anpassung. Zu beiden arbeitet Germanwatch an gerechten und effizienten Lösungen.

Morocco's INDC - A leading climate action commitment from the Arab region

A new wave of climate leadership is coming from the African continent. On 5 June, Morocco became the third African nation, following Ethiopia and Gabon, to submit its climate action commitment (or Intended Nationally Determined Contribution - INDC). With its timely submission, the host of the upcoming UN climate summit in 2016 also is the first Arab country to put forward its plan to transition its economy from fossil fuels to renewable energy. This is an important step towards the new global climate agreement, due to be signed in Paris this December. >> mehr

G7 leaders have a chance to create climate of confidence on energy transition

G7 Summit: NGOs to leaders

On the eve of the G7 Summit in Elmau, Germany, NGOs from all seven member countries call on their leaders to send a strong signal that the era of fossil fuels is over. As the world's largest industrialised countries, the G7 have a global responsibility to go further and faster to address climate change through rapid decarbonisation of their economies and providing support to the poorest. >> mehr

A development policy perspective on community acceptance and procedural justice in the context of utility-scale renewable energy

Simply because utility-scale renewable energy (RE) projects substitute for fossil fuel plants does not per se imply that they will result in sustainable, equitable or even pro-poor development outcomes in the environments in which they are embedded and on the people they serve... >> mehr

White Paper on the Electricity Market and the New Climate Policy Instrument

Summary Evaluation by WWF and Germanwatch

The "electricity market" White Paper published by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) puts forward practical proposals for implementing key projects in the Federal Government's short-term plan for achieving the energy transition. In general the WWF and Germanwatch view the BMWi's proposed measures as a good basis for the forthcoming debate. If carried through, these measures could form the cornerstone of a credible climate policy. However, the following remarks are limited to the analysis and evaluation of the new climate policy instrument for securing an adequate CO2 reduction contribution by the power sector. Only a short appraisal is given of the other three proposals. >> mehr

Melting glaciers: Peruvian requests German utility RWE to pay for protective measures

It is the first time in Europe that one of the world’s largest polluters is prompted to pay for the safety of a person at risk of climate change consequences

A person affected by climate change has made the unprecedented move to launch a claim against a European carbon major, demanding that the company contribute to urgently needed protective measures: Peruvian citizen Saúl Luciano Lliuya, with the help of the renowned environmental lawyer Dr. Roda Verheyen (Hamburg), demands payment for safety works from German utility RWE. Mr Luciano Lliuya’s property as well as large parts of his hometown Huaraz are prone to a so-called glacial lake outburst flood from Lake Palcacocha located upstream from the city. >> mehr
