Key issues to increase the chances of the next MFF delivering on Europe 2020 priorities

The Green 10 has written an open letter to the President of the European Parliament, Mr Martin Schulz ahead of the 22-23rd November European Summit on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2014 – 2020.

In the letter the Green10 sets out some key issues that could substantially increase the chances of the next MFF delivering on Europe 2020 priorities on:

  • Climate action: Ensure that 20% of the next MFF supports climate acti
  • Common Agricultural Policy (CAP): Ensure the delivery of public benefits
  • Cohesion policy: Put sustainability at the heart of regional development investments
  • Ensure that LIFE (Environment and Climate fund) receives 1% of the next MFF
  • External dimension: Maintain the Commission’s proposed allocation
