As the EU braces for even more ambitious emission reductions through its Fit for 55 plans, we want to show where the WB region stands on the energy transition and whether it is a fitor a fail for the EU.
The objective is to raise awareness at the EU level about the difficulties in implementing a progressive energy transition agenda in the WB and how potential derailment could affect the EU in its responsibilities or policy coherence. We also want to show political avenues and instruments to address these challenges, particularly by the EU actors. Ultimately, we want to increase the EU political support for the transition. By showing this form of solidarity to its next-door neighbors, the EU could gain additional credibility in being a global leader in climate neutrality and decarbonization efforts. A true win-win for the WB region and the EU.
Moderated by Dave Keating, EURACTIV.
