#EUelections2019 - Climate change
Event date: 17/04/2019
The European Parliament has been pushing for the implemention of its 2030 goals to be in line with the targets set by the Paris Agreement.
To achieve the set goals the EU’s budget should also be coherent with its international commitments, and the post-2020 long-term budget should have climate and energy targets at its heart. The share of climate-related spending should be increased from 20% to 30% as soon as possible, and all remaining spending should be Paris-compliant and not counter-productive to climate efforts.
