European Green Deal in CEE: Is the EU’s green budget leading to climate action?


The EU has declared that 30% of its budget for 2021 – 2027 must be utilized for climate action. Realistically, this isn’t the case. Join the discussion on how these funds are being used and how they can support fulfilling the goals within the European Green Deal.

The EU has declared that 30% of its budget for 2021 – 2027 must be utilized for climate action. In their national and regional spending plans, the Member States determine how these funds will be spent and herewith the direction and pace at which Europe will reach its climate goals. However, these documents do not always guarantee the optimal use of EU funds for the environment and climate.

Based on research the EUKI project Efficient Allocation of EU Funds by CEEweb for Biodiversity has delivered, this web seminar will provide an overview of how the EU’s green budget is implemented in the CEE region and whether it helps achieving the European Green Deal goals. Furthermore, insights into EU – funded climate projects in Hungary and the government’s efforts in achieving the European Green Deal targets will be discussed.

Speakers:

  • Olivier Vardakoulias, Finance and Subsidies Policy Coordinator, CAN Europe
     
  • Aleksandra Khirv, Project Coordinator, CEEweb for Biodiversity
      
  • Viktor Oroszi, Deputy State Secretariat for External Economic Relations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary
