Thus, European data now cover 28 Member States to take into account the accession of Croatia to the European Union on the 1st of July 2013. Moreover, the comparison of greenhouse gas emissions under “territorial” and “carbon footprint” approaches is based on the latest figures, dating from 2010. Furthermore, a section as been added on climate finance.

This publication, through its organization and the choice of covered opics, is aimed at informing the widest audience possible about limate change, its geophysical properties, causes and effects as well as the international policy frameworks stablished to limit its progression.

    Adaptation: plotting pathways is the next essential step

    As stated by the European Commission there is a “lack of preparedness and [a] disproportion between the climate threats and response mechanisms and structures in place”. One of the key factors in speeding up the implementation of adaptation actions will be the definition, in particular by public authorities, of « clear adaptation pathways setting up the process of how to achieve them through the sequence of options and actions ». The cost of these trajectories will also need to be quantified, to ensure that the human and financial resources are available for implementation.  For the time being, this work of defining adaptation trajectories is generally lacking, whatever the sector or scale. And the means to be deployed for adaptation are therefore unknown.

    From denial to acceptance: Europe’s next step in the cleantech race

    Psychologists sometimes talk about the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. One year on from the announcement of the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the European response has looked startlingly similar. Public anger in Brussels at perceived American protectionism. Private sector depression at the prospect of Europe falling behind in the global cleantech race. Denial of the gap between the EU and US efforts, by arguing that that all EU and national spending on cleantech amounts to a conservative estimate of what the IRA offers (while not factoring in the full range of US support).
