NECPs: EU countries fail to rise up to the climate challenge

Here is the way to a strong and inclusive (final) climate plan

Earlier this week, the European Commission published its analysis and recommendations for the EU Member States on their draft National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs). The message was clear: EU countries must strengthen their national plans to reach Europe’s climate targets.

It did not come as a surprise; in our recent
analysis of the draft NECPs of Spain, Italy, Poland, Romania and Hungary, we found a lack of ambition and concrete measures - particularly in the transport, buildings and agricultural sectors - the key areas to achieve deep emission cuts

We will launch five more assessments very soon, stay tuned!

Furthermore, the plans were mostly developed without broad and inclusive dialogue that would have allowed all interested stakeholders, such as local and regional authorities, civil society organisations and citizens to take part in shaping them. 

The good news is, there is still time!

Governments now have six months to close the gaps and give public participation the attention it deserves in the development of the final plans.
