    Climate policy | Germany | Europe | ZEWBookTalk

    What contribution must municipalities, the federal government and the EU make in order to achieve the climate targets? Which instruments are effective and which are counterproductive? And what can each and every one of us do to make a difference?

At the #ZEWBookTalk on 4 July 2022, the economist gave a preview of his book and presented its core theses. In his presentation, Wambach provided the around 55 participants with an overview of the various dimensions of climate policy.
