Most Recent Developments in Environmental and Climate Change Areas

A high level of protection of environment is one of the key objectives enshrined in the EU treaties. It covers a wind range of areas such as nature protection (Natura 2000 network), environmental impact assessments, water protection, waste management, etc. It is very closely linked with another key objective: to combat climate change. The recent crucial 21st Conference Of Parties (COP21) held in December in Paris is supposed to pave the way for reducing climate change in the post-Kyoto Protocol period.This one-day seminar aims at providing all interested parties with an update on the most recent developments in environmental and climate change policies and legislation, focusing in particular on:• The results of the Paris COP21 and expectations on the future climate change-energy EU legislative package.• The process of ‘fitness check’ launched by the Commission of the Nature protection legislation (‘Birds’ and ‘Habitats’ directives).• Expectations in the area of Water protection following the expiry of the Water Framework Directive’s deadline to reach ‘good status’ of water by 22/15/2015.• Waste legislation & expectations on the ‘circular economy.’• The novelties of the new Environmental Impact Assessment Directive from 2014.
