WRR-Policy Brief on national climate policy in the Netherlands

The WRR-Policy Brief ‘Klimaatbeleid voor de lange termijn: van vrijblijvend naar verankerd’ has been translated into English. The publication Long-term commitment for national climate policy in the Netherlands is now available online.

Long-term commitment

Climate policy for the long term calls for a balance between political commitment and adaptive capacity. In the policy brief Long-term commitment for national climate policy in the Netherlands the WRR recommends enhancing the institutional safeguards and long-term perspective in Dutch national climate policy. A Climate Act could legally determine a national emissions budget. A Climate Authority is necessary to ensure consistent implementation in various policy areas and at different levels of administration

The WRR-Policy Brief Klimaatbeleid voor de lange termijn: van vrijblijvend naar verankerd was presented by the Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) to Sharon Dijksma, the Dutch State Secretary for Infrastructure and the Environment, on the 13th of October 2016.
