How North Rhine-Westphalia's "Climate Discourse" Is Providing A Plattform For Discussions on Common and Conflicting Interests Around Climate Protection

KlimaDiskurs.NRW Case Study

This case study shows how KlimaDiskurs.NRW is facilitating dialogue on potentially controversial climate and energy issues between various stakeholders within the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is part of the Energy Transition Platform, a global initiative supporting highly industrialized, carbon-intensive state and regional governments in developing and implementing innovative clean energy policies to accelerate the low carbon transition.
The partner regions of the Energy Transition Platform – Alberta, the Basque Country, California, Hauts-de-France, Lombardy, Minnesota, North Rhine-Westphalia, Silesia, South Australia, Upper Austria and Wales – come together to learn from their global peers, to build strong partnerships and to jointly overcome barriers to the adoption of clean energy models. The Energy Transition Platform is part of the States & Regions Policy Work and was launched by The Climate Group, alongside the initiative’s lead government, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Stiftung Mercator, in early 2016.
