16:30 - 18:30 CEST


Martti Ahtisaari Peace Hall, Palazzo Buontalenti

Session as part of the EUI Climate Week 2024.

How to shape the new EU policy cycle in the middle of important geopolitical changes: two wars on Europe's doorstep, elections in half of the world, retreating globalisation, and trade disputes, the EU risk being more on its own, the emergence of extreme right political parties questioning climate policies. At the same time raising the billions needed for the climate and energy transition is likely to require a review of current macro-economic policies within the euro area, as well as more dedicated funding at EU level, after the phasing out of Recovery and Resilience Facility in 2026. At the international level, UNFCCC negotiations may need a strong and clear direction to make COP30 in Brazil a success.
