WWF Priority Demands to the Polish Presidency
Europe’s freshwater resources are threatened by overuse, pollution, and lack of appropriate water management. Intact freshwater ecosystems are becoming rare. Biebrza Marshes, Poland.
The start of the Polish presidency sets a series of decisive reforms for the EU into play: from the preparation of the EU Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2014-2020 to the reform of the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) Cohesion Policy and the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), to the Resource Efficiency Roadmap. The next 18 months will reveal if the EU-27 is finally making the necessary reforms needed to allow the EU to move towards a sustainable, smart, resource efficient and low-carbon economy, whilst respecting the ecological limits of the world.
