[WBC-RTI.INFO Newsletter] - Sustainable Development | European Green Deal

Sustainable development is the organizing principle for meeting human development goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services based upon which the economy and society depend.

On 11 December 2019, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal - its ambitious flagship project aiming at Europe becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050: "Becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our times. To achieve this, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal, the most ambitious package of measures that should enable European citizens and businesses to benefit from sustainable green transition. Measures accompanied with an initial roadmap of key policies range from ambitiously cutting emissions, to investing in cutting-edge research and innovation, to preserving Europe’s natural environment. Supported by investments
in green technologies, sustainable solutions and new businesses, the Green Deal can be a new EU growth strategy. Involvement and commitment of the public and of all stakeholders is crucial to its success. Above all, the European Green Deal sets a path for a transition that is just and socially fair. It is designed in such a way as to leave no individual or region behind in the great transformation ahead." - European Commission, Green Deal Website
The European Green Deal also includes a clear objective to set up a Green Agenda for the Western Balkans, mirroring the Green Deal. Find below for download our related newsletter.
