Directly from the dpa news channel
Berlin (dpa) – On Monday, the environment ministers of the federal states will meet online for a special conference to exchange flood protection. In addition to protective measures, after the devastating floods this year, coping with the consequences of floods will also be a topic. Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s Agriculture and Environment Minister Till Backhaus (SPD) is the current chairman of the Conference of Environment Ministers.
The environmental protection organization WWF Germany expresses itself in advance and sees the federal states as obliged to focus on ecological flood protection and natural water retention in the landscape. “It is a matter of promoting the benefits for the climate, water and biodiversity with the upcoming investments in flood protection at the same time,” said Tobias Schäfer, WWF expert for water protection in Germany, on Sunday.
