Brief description

The German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) provides guidance for political decision-makers. A large number of decisions have to be taken without the interaction of global and development problems being understood in detail. The WBGU communicates complex interrelationships, estimates risks and proposes "planetary guardrails" (e.g. the 2°C target for climate protection), which should not be overstepped. Thus the WBGU facilitates fact-based political and social dialogues and assists political decision-making.
