Climate Change Agreements Evaluation

For example, the “expanded transparency framework” of Article 13 (1) and a review of global efforts to achieve the long-term objectives of the agreement (i.e. the “global inventory” of Article 14). By systematically analysing policy assessments, the article aims to improve the understanding of existing climate policy assessment practices in the EU and the Member States and to superimpose them on broader policy developments at EU and international level. The article first provides some background information on policy evaluation theory and an overview of EU evaluation practices. He then explains the methodology of our analysis. It summarises and discusses the results of the meta-analysis and concludes with recommendations to EU policymakers and climate policy assessors. However, in order to increase climate ambitions, it will be important that policy assessments reflect on the adequacy of climate policy objectives and that support for the policy (because it is considered legitimate) is shared by a wide range of stakeholders. . . .
