Towards a 7th Environment
What are the key priorities and objectives for future EU environmental policy? What are the instruments to achieve them?
These were some of the key questions analysed in an IEEP project which sought to inform discussions on the 7th Environment Action Programme (7th EAP). The project was funded by the Danish Villum Foundation and analysed the needs, priorities and delivery mechanisms of a 7th EAP. The project developed a series of policy papers and established a platform for policy dialogue among relevant stakeholders, including representatives from the European institutions. The project was completed in December 2012 shortly after the European Commission presented its proposal for the 7th EAP.
