“What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up? This question not only concerns the environment in isolation; the issue cannot be approached piecemeal. (…) Why are we here? What is the goal of our work and all our efforts? What need does the earth have of us? (…) Unless we struggle with these deeper issues” – says the Pope, “I do not believe that our concern for ecology will produce significant results.” Laudato Si’ Encyclical Letter
While a growing number of countries announce their 2050 climate neutrality pledges and Contracting Parties of the Western Balkans have already committed to this target by the adoption of the Sofia Declaration, concrete long-term plans of action are still to be made. A new study of the Green Policy Center provides recommendations on how to set up long-term strategies to reach a climate-neutral future in the Energy Community.
The European Commission has long been preparing and feeding information to the public on its new climate instrument to even the international trade playing field for European companies, the so-called Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). After the proposal has been leaked to the press lately, the Green Policy Center had a look at the text to see what it could mean to the CEE region.
Loss of water resources affecting agriculture and forestry or the access to quality drinking water; rising temperatures creating favorable conditions for the outbreak of vector-borne diseases and transitional population migration – climate change is already having its negative effects on the Contracting Parties of the Energy Community, and inaction will even have further even harsher consequences on them. The new study of the Green Policy Center gives recommendations how to set up long term strategies to reach a climate neutral future.
