Municipal concepts

ifeu has been involved in municipal climate protection since the late 1980s. One key focal point is the development of climate protection strategies and concepts for municipalities and regions. ifeu is also active in relation to the issue of clean air planning at municipal level. Strategies for eco-friendly transport in the municipalities are a key focus. In particular, the development of municipal concepts involves analysis of the initial situation (including COemissions accounting), potential analysis, and the formulation of measures through a participatory process with extensive input from the key players in the municipality. More information about ifeu’s work on municipal climate protection concepts can be found here.

The following section provides details of a selection of projects which involved the development of climate protection concepts for municipalities, with particular reference to traffic.

Concepts for Climate Protection (local and regional)

ifeu has developed climate concepts for cities and communities since the late 1980’s. The proposed recommendations are based on detailed analysis and scenarios which are developed through an interactive process with key local stakeholders.

Evaluation of the project MehrWert NRW

The project shows the benefits and trends of climate-friendly lifestyles. Households in North Rhine-Westphalia are supported and motivated to make a contribution to climate protection in the areas of nutrition, mobility behaviour and resource-saving consumption. The focus is on practical and easy-to-implement tips on how consumers can make their everyday lives more sustainable.

Individual climate action scenarios

Many citizens struggle to identify with the Federal Government goals for greenhouse gas reduction by 2050. They have difficulties to discern transparent courses of action for their everyday life choices. To raise awareness and understanding, KlimAktiv and ifeu have advanced the existing CO2 citizen tool and designed a citizen scenario calculator.

A roadmap for the energy transition

An interdisciplinary team of scientists has connected the individual strands of the energy transition to form a whole, creating interfaces and transitions in the form of a roadmap for the energy transition as a starting point for discussion.
