The Ministerial Council of the Energy Community – a Treaty between the EU, the Western Balkans, Moldova and Ukraine – is expected to decide on far-reaching reforms this week. According to Dragana Mileusnic of Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, the Energy Community Treaty has failed to bring progressive climate policies to Southeast Europe. Countries that have signed the Treaty have made practically no effort to live up to its obligations and Brussels has put little pressure on them to do so. The extremely weak pledges made by these countries ahead of the Paris Climate Summit only confirm this picture, says Mileusnic. “If the EU can’t even get its neighbours to clean up, how can it claim climate leadership in the world?”
