28. Juni 2022 - European Green Deal in CEE: Is the EU’s green budget leading to climate action?

If you want to join the event on 28 June 2022, 13:00 – 14:00 CEST *please register here*.

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.

We kindly invite you to join the discussion and are looking forward to your active participation. Please note that the web seminar will be recorded.
