Impacts of climate change, climate mitigation and climate adaptation on the macroeconomic development in Germany
In this project, the impacts of climate change as well as the effects of measures for climate change mitigation and adaptation on selected economic parameters in Germany are investigated. The project consists of three main components:
(1) The statistical basis is clarified and the macroeconomic (preventive) expenditures for climate mitigation as well as the expenditures for climate adaptation measures are determined.
(2) Impact chains on climate change as well as climate mitigation and adaptation measures are discussed.
(3) The impact of climate change as well as climate mitigation and climate adaptation measures on the overall economic development, the value-added structures as well as the production potential in Germany are assessed using a combination of economic models (GINFORS-E and INFORGE-PANTA RHEI).
