Today (19/02/2020) ACT Alliance EU, along with 13 climate, environment and development NGOs sets out guiding principles and policy recommendations to enable the European Commissioner Jutta Urpilainen to ensure the European Green Deal works for Europeans and delivers for people in the EU’s partner countries, the climate and biodiversity.

Recommendations cover EU actions on the Paris Climate Agreement and the Convention on Biodiversity, the Renewed Partnership and the Comprehensive Strategy with Africa, funding the transition and programming the Neighbourhood, Development & International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI).

The paper sets out principles to guide action to ensure the European Green Deal delivers for people in the EU’s partner countries, the climate and biodiversity: policy coherence for sustainable development, climate and environment mainstreaming, a human-rights based approach, gender equality, and inclusiveness and participation.
