Reports & Briefings

CAN Europe, Aprodev, German Watch, CIDSE and Oxfam commissioned the a report in order to identify how the EU can improve the current process for monitoring their climate finance commitments.

The new report assesses how the EU can improve its current process for monitoring its climate finance commitments. It also makes recommendations for how the EU can ensure it has a transparent process in place.

Developing countries have long insisted on the need to provide financial support in a transparent and coordinated manner to enable independent review of the extent to which commitments are fulfilled, as well as maximizing the effectiveness of the funding. Moreover, transparency is vital to ensuring that the funds are equitably distributed over all developing countries in need of support, with priority for the most vulnerable developing countries.

The report explores different ways to improve the current system of Measuring Reporting and Verification (MRV) of international climate finance, with a focus on what the EU can do.

 The European Commission has made a proposal for a new regulation for monitoring and reporting of climate finance, called the Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism (MMR).  The new CAN Europe report seeks to provide specific recommendations to feed into this legislative process.

    CAN Europe is asking both policymakers and grid operators to make the TYNDP fully compatible with the Paris Agreement. European energy infrastructure urgently needs to be prepared for a 100% renewable energy system, making use of all flexibility options in a swift and cost-effective way.
  • Coal is out. Are the Western Balkans in?

    Are EU member-states in Southeast Europe ready for timely and just transition beyond coal? For the Western Balkans, membership hopefuls, the question is how much longer can public subsidies and Chinese loans keep coal zombie alive at growing cost to health, livelihoods, and the environment?
  • Submission - Feedback on ENTSOS' Proposals for TYNDP 2022 Storylines

    Future energy infrastructure planning in Europe needs to be fully aligned with the Paris Agreement. CAN Europe recommends to increase variation of TYNDP 2022 storylines by assessing higher ambition of greenhouse gas emission reductions. In order to reach the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement, a trajectory towards net-zero emissions in 2040 should be assessed. Instead of primarily opposing “decentralised” and “global” solutions in the TYNDP 2022 storylines, at least one scenario should analyse how to prepare European energy infrastructure for a 100% renewable energy system in the most efficient way, combining the best out of both “decentralised” and “global” futures.
