Check out our latest research report that sheds light on coherence in marine policies within European Green Deal.
The report reveals that the EGD encompasses various strategies directly or indirectly linked to the ocean, covering areas such as biodiversity, climate adaptation, pollution, renewable energy, sustainable mobility, and fisheries. However, there is a lack of clear alignment and coherence among these objectives and targets, highlighting the need for greater integration.
While climate targets have been strengthened and translated into legally binding commitments, biodiversity-related targets often lack specific quantitative metrics. The report emphasises the need for clearer connections, a comprehensive roadmap, and continuous monitoring and revision of targets to ensure effective progress.
