Welcome to the EUKI Community!

The EUKI invites all of its projects to use this blog to share events, project results and other project related highlights on climate action in the European Union. Through the exchange, we want to enable organisations to share their experiences on good approaches on climate mitigation and allow the members of our EUKI Community to learn from each other. We also invite other actors to follow the blog and make use of EUKI project results.

An Unavoidable Step After Paris: Cutting Emissions from Farming

Should the biggest share of the EU budget, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), drive progressive climate action or rather support the status quo in European agriculture?

Local consultations in Bulgaria and Romania: drafting municipalities’ renovation strategies

Accelerating climate action buildings – strengthening civil society and policy-makers in Romania and Bulgaria (Our Buildings)

As Member States are expected to deliver their long-term renovation strategy by March next year, public consultation is now high on the agenda. National strategies can only be successful with the involvement of regional and local authorities, since they will be required to design and implement detailed action plans to deliver National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs). National renovation strategies should develop over time, taking account of new strategies at local and regional level, and therefore be reviewed and updated every three years.
