Towards a cleaner Mediterranean: a decade of progress

Achieving a cleaner Mediterranean Sea requires better implementation of policies and enhanced environmental data and information, according to this joint report by the European Environment Agency (EEA) and United Nations Environment Programme’s Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP). Cumulative effects of waste and marine litter, and wastewater and industrial emissions remain key challenges for the region.

How can science help to guide the European Union’s green recovery after COVID-19?

The design of efforts by the European Union (EU) and its Member States to recover from COVID-19 will determine the quality of people’s lives for decades to come. Related to the EU’s plans for a green recovery, European Academies urge policymakers to recognise the critical role of science and to step up efforts in three key areas: energy, ecosystem and health.

EEA (2019) The European environment — state and outlook 2020: knowledge for transition to a sustainable Europe

The European environment — state and outlook 2020

Europe will not achieve its 2030 goals without urgent action during the next 10 years to address the alarming rate of biodiversity loss, increasing impacts of climate change and the overconsumption of natural resources. The European Environment Agency’s (EEA) latest ‘State of the Environment’ report states that Europe faces environmental challenges of unprecedented scale and urgency. The report says, however, there is reason for hope, amid increased public awareness of the need to shift to a sustainable future, technological innovations, growing community initiatives and stepped up EU action like the European Green Deal.
Opportunités et conséquences d’une taxe d’incitation sur le CO2 prélevée sur les carburants

Opportunités et conséquences d’une taxe d’incitation sur le CO2 prélevée sur les carburants

Une taxe d’incitation sur le CO2 prélevée sur les carburants est un instrument politique de marché visant à diminuer les émissions de CO2. Elle renforce le principe du pollueur-payeur pour ce qui touche aux coûts dus aux effets envi- ronnementaux des transports. Cette taxe est judicieuse du point de vue de l’économie nationale, car elle pousse à prendre des mesures là où elles coûtent le moins. Et si les recettes sont rétrocédées à la population, elle est également socialement supportable : elle ne représente pas une charge supplémentaire pour les couches de la population à bas revenus, mais leur est même en partie profitable. Cela semble se vérifier aussi dans les régions périphériques mal desservies par les transports publics. Les taxes sur le CO2 avec remboursement partiel des recettes permettent de financer des mesures d’amélioration de la compatibilité climatique des transports. De plus, une affectation des recettes accroît l’acceptation d’une taxe par la population.

Instruments pour une politique climatique et énergétique efficace

La mise en place des jalons de la future politique climatique et énergétique est un objectif du processus politique en Suisse. Le pays entend sortir du nucléaire tout en réduisant ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Pour ce faire, il faut une politique climatique et énergétique coordonnée et à large assise, faisant appel à une combinaison efficace et efficiente d’instruments politiques tels que des taxes d’incitation ou des limites d’émission. Cette fiche d’information donne un aperçu des différents instruments et montre à quelles fins ils sont le mieux adaptés, quel impact ils peuvent avoir et quels sont leurs avantages et inconvénients.
SAPEA Evidence Review Report "Making sense of science for policy"

Making sense of science for policy under conditions of complexity and uncertainty

Ethics bodies and guidelines are needed to shape scientific advice provided to policymakers. The academy consortium SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies), which provides scientific input to the European Commission’s Scientific Advice Mechanism, also says in its new report that such advice should be multidisciplinary.
Responding to Rising Seas

Responding to Rising Seas

There is an urgent need to ensure that coastal areas are adapting to the impacts of climate change. Risks in these areas are projected to increase because of rising sea levels and development pressures. This report reviews how OECD countries can use their national adaptation planning processes to respond to this challenge. Specifically, the report examines how countries approach shared costs and responsibilities for coastal risk management and how this encourages or hinders risk-reduction behaviour by households, businesses and different levels of government. The report outlines policy tools that national governments can use to encourage an efficient, effective and equitable response to ongoing coastal change. It is informed by new analysis on the future costs of sea-level rise, and the main findings from four case studies (Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the United Kingdom).

Transforming the future of ageing

People are living longer than ever before, in Europe and around the world. This is a great achievement of the past century, but also brings challenges for European societies: adjustment to an ageing and shrinking workforce, and finding financially viable ways to deliver high-quality health and social care for all.

The imperative of climate action to protect human health in Europe

The European Union needs to accelerate its efforts to limit greenhouse gas emissions, this report demands. This is urgent given the pace and extent of climate change, which also adversely affects human health.
