Posted on 19 February 2020

This paper undersigned by 14 NGOs considers how the European Green Deal can help address the climate and biodiversity emergencies while better supporting people living in poverty in the Global South.
International Partnerships Commissioner Jutta Urpilainen’s first responsibility is to build inclusive and equitable partnerships to reduce global poverty and support sustainable development. This paper undersigned by 14 NGOs considers how she can use the European Green Deal to address the climate and biodiversity emergencies while better supporting people living in poverty in the Global South.

This paper responds to the European Commission’s Communication (11 December 2019) and sets out guiding principles and policy recommendations for Commissioner Urpilainen, to ensure the European Green Deal delivers for people in the EU’s partner countries, the climate and biodiversity.
