This policy paper outlines key options for enhancing the EU's evolving climate governance framework with a focus on accelerating the transition to climate neutrality and negative greenhouse gas emissions. The paper identifies key areas for improvement, including strengthening National Energy and Climate Plans, Long-Term Strategies, climate-neutrality targets, consistency and climate policy integration across different policy portfolios, independent scientific expert advisory bodies, review of progress and implementation, effective implementation, access to justice in climate matters, and public participation. The paper aims to stimulate further discussion and encourage the development of coherent sets of options to make EU climate governance fully fit for supporting the climate and energy transition.
