As President-elect of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE), Prof. Koundouri, would like to inform you that the Policy Outreach Committee (POC) of the Association prepared a statement on the EU’s legislative proposals on climate change that is presented for endorsement to the whole scientific community in Europe and worldwide. The statement has already been signed by POC members and EAERE Council members.
It aims to draw the attention of policy-makers and public opinion on the implications of the legislative package and on some key challenges that need to be addressed in the future. While the package can be further improved, it takes a step in the right direction if we want to raise the ambition of the European climate policy and achieve climate neutrality by mid-century. A rapid implementation of more ambitious policies is of crucial importance to fulfil our commitments, particularly after COP26.
She invites all of you to read and sign!
