Letters to Policy Makers

Open letter to ministers on the Multi-Annual Financial Framework

This open letter, signed by 101 organisations and sent today to EU ministers of European and Foreign Affairs ahead of the General Affairs Council meeting of 16 October, demands a dramatic improvement of climate action spending in the future EU budget.

More money should be invested in the clean energy and transport transition, ecosystem protection and sustainable farming, and solid safeguards are needed to ensure climate compatibility of all funding programmes.
