A talk by Jürgen Salay, policy officer at the European Commission and 2017-2018 EU Fellow at the University of Washington.
The European Union is probably the region of the world where most practical policy experimentation has taken place in the field of environment and climate change. In the past twenty years the EU has developed a comprehensive set of domestic climate policies and has emerged as a global leader in international climate negotiations.
In his talk, Dr. Salay will give a background on EU climate policy, explain the main objectives and targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions in the EU, and update on the latest developments. He will also relate EU climate policy to international relations and discuss challenges for the future.
