Quantitative and qualitative impact analysis of the measures of the German Reconstruction and Resilience Plan (DARP)

In the current issue of DIW Berlin: Politikberatung kompakt 168, DIW Econ and Prof Dr Claudia Kemfert, Dr Claus Michelsen as well as Dr Marius Clemens of the DIW Berlin analyse the macroeconomic impacts and climate protection effects of the German Reconstruction and Resilience Plan (DARP) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Finance (BMF). The goals of the DARP are to stabilise the economy and promote economic transformation.

Due to the planned partial financing from the European Reconstruction and Resilience Facility (ARF), the impact analysis of the DARP not only quantifies the economic and financial policy effects but also evaluates the effects of the DARP measures with regard to the requirements of the European Commission, which were defined in a predefined catalogue of criteria.
