Strategic Implementation of Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in German Municipalities - Results of a Broad Survey

In a panel contribution at the 28th Scientific Congress of the German Political Science Association GPSA from the 14th to 16th September 2021, we presented results of our municipal survey. In the presented study, we examined the strategic implementation of climate change mitigation and adaptation in German municipalities and explored the question of why some cities are more active than others.

The broad survey of 554 German municipalities on municipal climate action was conducted in the summer of 2020 by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI as part of work package 2. The focus of the survey is on the climate action of municipalities, the motives and strategies for their activities and their interaction with state actors.
