Development of a conceptual legal framework for a federal law of resource protection

18th of February 2013 by Stefanie Degreif

Oeko-Institute finalized in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Dr. Joachim Sanden and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Thomas Schomerus (Leuphana University Lüneburg) and commissioned by the German Federal Environment Agency a legal study on resource protection law. This legal analysis investigates the development of a regulatory concept for a German resource protection law at federal level. It contains a definition of the term „resources“, an inventory of resource protection law at international, European and national level and an outline of a regulatory concept for a new German federal resource protection law. Part of the regulatory concept is the selection and analysis of regulatory instruments classified with regard to the effects of the instrument (i.e. command & control, planning, economic and informational approach).
