IDOS workshop on policy (in)coherence

On 19 June German climate and energy experts came together in Bonn for the workshop “Policy (in)coherence in Germany’s Energiewende: synergies, trade-offs and political drivers”.

Dr Ines Dombrowsky (Head of the Environmental Governance and Transformation to Sustainability programme) and researcher Alexia Faus Onbargi together with Adis Dzebo, Senior Research Fellow at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and IDOS Associate Researcher hosted a by-invitation only workshop on the main (in)coherences in German energy and climate policy and their political drivers. The workshop, offered in hybrid format, invited German climate and energy experts to provide their input on some of the main findings of policy coherence research conducted by the IDOS ClimEQ project team over the past year. With Germany as one of six case study countries in the project, this research assesses some of the main synergies and trade-offs between federal energy and climate policies as well as state-specific policies in North Rhine-Westphalia. It also employs comparative politics concepts to examine the political drivers of observed (in)coherences, and assess if and how political inequality matters too. The workshop, held under strict Chatham House rules (no photographs were taken), was well received by attendees and provided ample food for thought for the researchers as they enter the writing stage. This video provides further information on the broader ClimEQ project.
