Hungarian Priorities on Climate Change

According to the agenda of the Hungarian Presidency, the EU has to maintain its leading role in the global fight against climate change.

Thus, the Presidency finds necessary to give a response at Union level to changing climate conditions and extreme water-related events.

Following the conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol held in December 2010, the Hungarian Presidency is committed to ensuring the implementation of the Cancún decisions within the EU and to discussing further steps needed. It will also start EU preparations for the South Africa climate summit in November/ December 2011, the objective of which is to set up a new global, comprehensive and legally binding framework on climate change, following the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol.

The Presidency will also advance tasks derived from the implementation of the EU’s Climate and Energy Package adopted in 2008 and in the Europe 2020 Strategy.
