Today the Council of the European Union meets in Luxembourg to debate about the Commission proposals for an effort-sharing on LULUCF regulation, concerning land use, land use change and forestry.
LULUCF regulation aims to set emission reduction targets for each member state in terms of land use and forestry sector.
This legislative instrument together with the emission trading system are considered as the main measures to accomplish EU’s to the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Another important point on the agenda is the adoption of conclusions on sustainable water management. EU water management emphasizes current challenges related to climate change, land use and sustainable development. These challenges are considered as the most important ones included in the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Finally, the Council will also discuss conclusions in matters of biodiversity and will adopt further regulation items, such as debating on two proposals on greenhouse gas reductions in the sectors not covered by the EU emissions trading system.
