Climate Plan Brandenburg Development of a Climate Protection Strategy for the State of Brandenburg

The Paris Agreement, which is binding under international law and was adopted at the 21st International Climate Change Conference (COP21) in 2015, has provided a new basis for climate protection policy in all countries. Existing climate protection concepts and targets must be adapted in order to contribute to achieving the target of limiting average anthropogenic global warming to 1.5° C of pre-industrial levels if possible.

The Federal State of Brandenburg has been committed to the goals of the Paris Agreement since the beginning of 2020. As a result, the Brandenburg state parliament has called on the government to develop a climate plan for the state.

In the “Brandenburg Climate Plan”, target scenarios and paths for greenhouse gas neutrality by (at the latest) 2050 are to be developed. To this end, the IÖW, together with partners, is analysing current developments, framework conditions and trends in an expert report, drafting scenarios with different focal points and developing strategies and measures. The various ministries concerned as well as stakeholders from all sectors are actively involved in the development of the Brandenburg Climate Plan. The drafting of the Brandenburg Climate Plan is expected to take place by spring 2022.
