BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – The German Association of Towns and Municipalities sees good approaches in the coalition agreement between the SPD, Greens and FDP, but has concerns about the financing of the project. “Many correct goals are described, the concrete implementation – in particular the sustainable financing – is partly vague,” said chief executive Gerd Landsberg of the German press agency in Berlin. For example, there are indications of an expansion of the welfare state. “It is to be hoped that the traffic light did not overestimate the efficiency of our state and the economy.”
Landsberg assesses positively that the municipalities should be financially supported in taking necessary measures against the consequences of climate change. The plan to cover 80 percent of the electricity demand with wind and solar energy by 2030 is also correct. “In view of the great resistance in the population, it remains to be seen whether the implementation will actually succeed.” / Ax / hrz / DP / stw
