This NGO brief has a special focus on the EU, highlighting a brief selection of contributions from NGOs and think tanks in the past month that are providing inputs to moving forward with the Paris Agreement and the SDGs. A set of reports on the new EU long-term climate strategy outline several technical and policy options for the strategy, including on the process for developing the strategy, its content and scope, and the process for review and revision of the strategy once it is established. Another report provides an assessment of the EU Emissions Trading System, finding that it is currently “fit for purpose” if assessed by its own standards, but that it requires enhancement to be in line with the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement.
