Europe's environmental plans to face challenges

According to an article by EurActiv, Europe will face difficulties regarding its plan for strengthening global environmental governance at the upcoming sustainable development conference this week. “I think this is really going to be one of the big disappointments of the conference,” says Jeremy Wates, secretary-general of the European Environmental Bureau.
The plan to empower the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), strongly supported by conservationists and the EU institutions, is part of an ambitious European agenda to set global conservation targets and lead a transformation to leaner and greener economic growth.
Janez Potočnik, the EU environment commissioner and one of the architects of Europe’s Rio agenda, who has recognised that talks leading up to the conference have not been easy,  states that, though insufficient progress has been made, there are  “ high hopes” that Brazil, as a the host country, “will engage that with a strong ambition.”
