Comments Since the year 2011, the Ministry has supported programmes designed to tackle climate change but failed to analyse programme effectiveness. The grant funding programmes met with little demand only. By 2016, a mere €12.6 million had been called up which is 30 per cent only of the €41.2 million earmarked for this purpose. Since no measurable targets had been defined, the Ministry was unable to review programme achievements. Most of the grants were spent mainly on strategic approaches and educational courses. The Ministry even failed to review whether the grant funded programmes were actually implemented. The Ministry intends to wait until the year 2020 to refine the programme and to explore ways of setting more specific targets and of measuring target achievement. The Ministry should promptly realign its grant programme and explore options of how to support steps to tackle climate change in an effective manner. In doing so, the Ministry should bear in mind that responsibility for adaptation programmes lies in the first place with the federal states and local governments. If the Ministry intends to pursue this grant programme it should take note of their respective programmes and activities designed to adapt to the impact of climate change.
