The Layman´s Report brings a summary of The Unify project that started from the conviction that by developing ambitious NECPs and nLTS Member States can accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon and resilient economy in Europe and push the Union not only to meet its emissions reduction targets, but go beyond them, thereby bringing the EU-wide emission reduction trajectory closer to Paris Agreement commitments.
The LIFE Unify consortium has monitored the drafting and early implementation of NECPs for the last three years and in this final report concludes that, in their current form and with their current overall level of ambition, NECPs developed by the EU Member States between 2018 and 2019 are dramatically unfit for purpose. This LIFE Unify report provides key recommendations for successful NECP revision.
On 30 June 2022, a webinar organised by the LIFE Unify project brought together decision-makers, businesses and civil society representatives to discuss the impacts of the ‘REPowerEU’ package at the national level, and how Member States can use it as an accelerator for the energy transition and national climate action. You can read the report from the event here.
The aim of the project is to contribute to support the efficient use of EU money in the participating countries, highlight best practices and ‘lessons learnt’, and widely disseminate these observations both nationally and internationally. Thus, the project will help to improve the level and quality of EU funding and fiscal policy for EU climate action and EGD delivery by focusing on the game-changing actions at the national level.
The EEB and the Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) launched a new project in October 2020. It aims to fom the EU budget for the period 2021-27 and the European Recovery Plan. Consortium members provide expert input to the policy process and strive to fulfil the participatory principle.
The project raises awareness, builds capacity, and supports EU citizens, particularly young people, in building public support for ambitious climate change and development policies which have gender equality at their core.
Partner organizations bring together experience of climate change campaigning and communication in Europe, gender equality, European youth mobilisation, and climate change development programmes in the Global South.
Centre for Transport and Energy is a non-profit non-governmental organisation founded in 1998 that focuses on the environmental impacts of transportation and energy production. Our aim is building and reinforcing a wide platform of groups and individuals who are interested in working towards sustainable transport and energy future.
