Call for “climate passport” helps advance debate about fairness in climate policy – opinion

Frankfurter Rundschau

It is futile to hope that the German government will officially propose the introduction of a “climate passport” at the upcoming UN climate conference COP24 in Katowice, Poland, writes Joachim Wille in an opinion piece in Frankfurter Rundschau. In a recent policy paper, the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) had called for “humane and dignified migration options” for people who are forced to leave their native countries due to climate change. “At least, the WBGU paper advances the debate about fairness in climate policy,” writes Wille.
