As part of the fitness check of the EU Nature Directives, the European Commission is organising a high-level conference in Brussels on 20 November. The purpose of the conference is to present and discuss the emerging findings from the assessment of evidence and information gathered during the process.
The latest edition of IEEP's newsletter is now available. David Baldock discusses Volkswagen and lack of implementation and compliance across EU environmental policy in general. Also: greening of the CAP; Marine Protected Areas; and LULUCF.
The story of how and why EU environmental policy has developed in different fields is told in a new book by Nigel Haigh, former Director of IEEP and still an active Honorary Fellow. The book was launched in London on May 25 in collaboration with the Institution of Environmental Sciences and Society for the Environment.
