Ministers to agree on the cornerstones of 7TH EAP

As the 6th Environmental Program will expire soon, and it has been a top priority for the Danish Presidency to set the stage for a green transition of Europe , the European Ministers for environment and climate will meet with the aim of reaching an agreement on the cornerstones of a future 7th Environment Action Programme.
Ministers will also agree on council conclusions on the mandate for the 11th meeting under the Convention for Biodiversity (CBD), taking place in October in Hyderabad, India. The mandate will make it possible for the EU to engage constructively in the discussions with the developing countries in regards to the financing of global biodiversity.According to the Danish presidency press service, this programme will lead the way for an ambitious environmental policy and transition towards a green economy in Europe 2020.
Likewise,  European ministers will debate key issues of the Commissions recent proposal for common accounting rules for greenhouse gas emission from forestry and land use in the EU. Currently, there is no EU accounting framework in place beyond 2012.
“This is an important first step in strengthening the foundation for climate friendly conduct in the forestry and land use sectors. In this way, we encourage that all sectors in the EU contribute to the fights against climate change” says Minister for Climate, Energy and Building Martin Lidegaard.
