Extending the operational geographic scope of the European Green Deal
In its December 2019 Communication on the European Green Deal (COM (2019) 640 final) the European Commission pledged to put an emphasis on supporting not just the EU Member States but immediate neighbours as well. The ecological transition for Europe can only be fully effective, the Commission said, if the EU’s immediate neighbourhood also takes effective action. Work is underway on a green agenda for the Western Balkans, it added. The Commission and the High Representative are also envisaging, the Communication continued, a number of strong environment, energy and climate partnerships with the Southern Neighbourhood and within the Eastern Partnership. While the message is resolute enough the intended energy and climate transition, bearing important geopolitical connotations, has not matured much even on the conceptual level. This article aims to stimulate debate and action on the issue.
