As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread across Europe, citizens worry about their health and that of their loved ones, and also about the impacts on their jobs and livelihoods. During this time of crisis, which is putting many people's livelihoods at risk, it is essential that our leaders issue a strong response, helping to alleviate the uncertainty, especially for the most vulnerable. This response must address the immediate health, social and economic urgency, in a way that improves the resilience of our economy towards crisis and well-being of people and nature.
While Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe and the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) welcome the progress of the ENTSOs in view of stakeholder engagement and their willingness to include a carbon budget into their modelling, we are very concerned about the current set of scenarios.
