Work Package 2

Fraunhofer ISI (lead) and University of Kassel

WP2 examines motivations and strategies for climate protection activities by non-state actors (here: municipalities) and their interactions with state actors. First, case study interviews are carried out with representatives of climate-active municipalities and networks of municipalities. Then, a survey is implemented among municipal decision makers. The survey data are analyzed employing statistical and econometric methods. In selecting adequate interview partners, it is drawn on guidance provided by the advisory board, notably the EU Climate Alliance.
