Countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are blessed with huge and diversified renewable energy potential. Given the ever-increasing role of renewables in the energy mix of the EU, renewable energy cooperation has been a major pillar of the EU-MENA partnership.

European Cities and Citizens delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals

How can European cities and citizens deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, what do they mean for European cities and how can citizens and grassroots initiatives help implement them?

A Progressive Approach to Climate Challenges: The EU and the Latin American and Caribbean Region Working Together

The European Union and the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region have already got an increasing experience of cooperation in this field, either under the context of EUROCLIMA or other specific EU programmes or on the basis of bilateral cooperation between different countries in each region. This paper suggests new precise proposals, complementary to the ongoing work on many different subjects such as REDD, agriculture, early warning systems.

Europe and Latin America Towards More Ambitious Collective Climate Action

With the 2014 Climate Summit taking place in Lima, Latin America is put into the spotlight of the international climate scene. Based on shared history and values, Latin America and the European Union could strengthen their bi-regional partnership and develop new narratives that might help to overcome the North-South division.

Ready for Paris, Pushed by Europe’s Regions?

Can the EU gain back a pioneer role through own pledges when it comes to mitigation, adaptation and financing - or is there a risk for the Union to remain a latecomer due to internal tug wars? Does Europe rather need fresh impetus from its regions to reach real climate commitments in the EU, as time runs out until talks under UN auspices have to be finalized in Paris next year? With more and more municipalities and regions embarking successfully on climate action, are there chances for these actors to go beyond current achievements, particularly if an ambitious EU strategy does not see the light of day? As regional and local entities - directly affected by climate change - would be hit hard by a fail ure of the 2015 Paris summit, how can local and regional climate action be driven forward and coordinated more transnationally in the near future?

L'Atlas de la Viande

Comment des consommateurs normaux peuvent-ils comprendre les effets causés par leur consommation de viande ? Combien de personnes réalisent que notre demande de viande est directement responsable du défrichement de la forêt amazonienne ? Sommes-nous conscients des impacts de l’élevage industriel sur la pauvreté et la faim, les déplacements de populations et la migration, sur le bien-être animal, ou sur le changement climatique et la biodiversité ?

Resource Politics for a Fair Future

In this Memorandum the notion of new politics is introduced to look at current conflicts around resource use as a complex set of interactions between nature, humans, interests, power relations and cultures. With this text the Heinrich Böll Foundation offers a perspective which combines democracy, ecology and human rights and lays out fundamental ways forward that can form the basis for fair and sustainable Resource Politics.

TIME TO ACT - How the EU Can Lead on Climate Change and Migration

With this report, the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union wants to raise awareness that there is already a great deal that we know about climate change and migration. The time has come to translate research evidence and recommendations into policy practice: what role can and should the EU play to adequately respond to the challenge of climate change and migration?
