Environment for Development in the new EU External Action funding instrumentsAs the new financial instruments for external actions of the EU for 2014-2020 are currently being designed, WWF has specific recommendations to ensure there is specific and adequate funds for environmental priorities in the future.
There are four key issues to be addressed in this regard:
- Promoting environmental sustainability and climate objectives through EU external actions
- Meeting international commitments on the Millennium Development Goals and Multilateral Environmental Agreements
- Meeting international climate finance commitments and ensuring additionality of climate finance
- Ensuring and supporting civil society participation in development policy dialogue and programmes
