MEPs and Environment Ministers Discuss Waste and Natural Resource Use

AUTHORS: Catherine Bowyer-Carolina Valsecchi

EU Policy Briefing – 13 July 2007

Effective waste and natural resource management is fundamental to the achievement of many of Europe’s broader environmental goals. There had been hopes that the publication, at the very end of 2005, of the Thematic Strategies on waste and recycling on the one hand and natural resource use on the other would provide momentum to these debates – especially regarding the prevention of waste and better use of resources. While perhaps the Strategies did not have the dramatic impact (nor did they contain the ambitious targets) some had hoped for, they have at least ensured that discussions on these important but contentious issues have taken place.
