Low average for the 27 EU member states

While key actors discuss in Durban, a new report commissioned by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) analyses  EU’s climate policies  and considers that  such a strategy is "standstill in long-term". Among potential measures to undertake, the study suggests an agricultural policy reform.

The report grades both EU-level policies and those of the 27 member states according to an A to G scale. The 27 EU member states as a whole get an 'E'.Other findings include a claim that the EU's emission trading system will fail to achieve a decarbonised economy by 2050, as "the current trajectory overshoots this goal by 20 years."

The report details a range of potential policy measures such as a carbon tax, a legal agreement on targets beyond 2020, and reforming farm policy to take climate change into account.

The report was funded by the European Climate Foundation and written by Ecofys, a consultancy specialising in renewable energy and climate policy.
