Abstract (copyright © Policy Department) :
This study reviews the state of play of on-going EU environmental legislation and pinpoints key issues for Europe in the area of environmental and climate policies for the next five years. In addition to traditional themes that require urgent actions (biodiversity, air and water, chemicals), special attention is paid to emerging cross-cutting issues (circular economy, sustainability of cities, eco-innovation). EU efforts in addressing climate change are reviewed, highlighting specific implementation challenges and their relevance for international climate policy.
