What is the German government’s new strategy for tackling climate change?
The Federal Government is launching a new initiative to address climate change that will be part of a broader national strategy, according to a government document obtained by The Globe and Mail.
The document, obtained by the Globe and News under Access to Information laws, calls for the establishment of a new National Climate Action Plan (NCAP) to coordinate actions to meet the country’s climate goals.
The plan will be created by the end of March, with the goal of developing a coordinated national strategy for the prevention, mitigation and adaptation of climate change.
The new plan, called the National Climate Strategy, will be formally launched at the end a month later.
The first draft was released by Environment Minister Christian Schmidt on January 10, three days before the United Nations Climate Summit.
Schmidt, who is also environment minister in the chancellor’s office, said the document was the result of a collaborative effort among various federal departments and agencies.
It will also be based on the latest scientific evidence, he said.
It is a new document that will guide the implementation of national climate policy.
Schmidt said the plan is based on a consensus of the Federal Government’s climate strategy that has been developed for many years.
It includes the establishment, management and monitoring of the carbon markets, an integrated carbon market framework and the development of a carbon pricing mechanism to incentivize use of low-carbon energy sources.
He said the government will also work on a new national climate strategy to prepare the country for the climate challenge.
“The Federal Government will use the National Strategy to ensure that the climate is prepared to withstand the effects of climate changes,” Schmidt said in a statement.
He noted the plan also seeks to ensure a low carbon economy is achieved, and that climate change policies are implemented as quickly as possible.
The draft also sets out the government’s priorities for the next two decades.
“There is a need to strengthen and strengthen the federal climate strategy,” he said, adding that it is a key element of a broad national strategy that will ensure the country is prepared for the challenges of climate.
“This is an important step in the National strategy.”
The draft document is a first for Schmidt, whose department is tasked with preparing the national climate plan for the first time.
It comes amid a nationwide debate over climate change and how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Schmidt’s comments follow those of Environment Minister Margot Wallstrom, who earlier this month told reporters that the federal government had a “clear plan” on the issue.
Wallstrom said that the National Plan for Climate Action will help develop a “climate plan that will help us adapt to climate change.”
“This will give us a strong plan that we can use as we go forward,” Wallstrom told reporters in Edmonton on Monday.
The United Nations climate summit will take place in New York City on March 20-21.
The National Climate Plan is expected to be released at the same time.
The paper lays out a framework for dealing with climate change, as well as a roadmap for the implementation and monitoring and assessment of the national carbon market.
It calls for a carbon tax to be implemented in all jurisdictions, as the government seeks to avoid a global carbon market collapse.
It also lays out how the federal carbon market would work, what the federal Government’s carbon pricing mechanisms would be, and what the government plans to do about carbon capture and storage (CCS).
“We know the climate changes every day,” Schmidt told reporters after the briefing.
“We need to prepare to deal with it.”
The Federal Environment Ministry is responsible for the carbon market, which has been the source of the biggest challenge to the federal plan.
The climate plan includes the National Carbon Market, which is designed to create a system for pricing carbon, and also the Climate Fund, which supports projects to tackle climate change in the country.
The Climate Fund is an investment program that the Federal Environment Minister has used to finance projects aimed at reducing emissions from the electricity sector.
“I don’t want to see us fall behind the rest of the world,” Schmidt added.
“That’s not the way to get ahead.”
