This website summarizes the preliminary findings of two pilot studies of the Climate Action Science project. We constantly update this page and add additional information. In case you would like to learn more about the project, feel free to contact Max Jungmann (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Climate Action Science - first steps
The project provides high-resolution emission inventories for methane and carbon dioxide and atmospheric measurements
at the municipal level as a tool for climate-active institutions and individuals (Theme 1). But does better information
also lead to more climate action? - The project examines the performance of different inventory and verification options
to effectively support citizen-driven climate action (Theme 2).
In order to get some first insights into the feasibility of the project, the Ministry of Science, Research and Art Baden-Württemberg has funded two initial research projects of Climate Action Science. The first one constitutes a pilot study to test some essential hypotheses of CAS in Heidelberg and the second one serves to foster international cooperation with our partners in California. Detailed information follows below.
