Euro­pean Union off 2020 tar­get

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Copen­hagen

– The Euro­pean Union (EU) will not meet its en­vi­ron­men­tal tar­gets for 2020 but could achieve those for 2030 and 2050 if ur­gent ac­tion is taken, the Euro­pean En­vi­ron­ment Agency (EEA) said yes­ter­day.

“While most of the 2020 tar­gets will not be achieved, es­pe­cially those on bio­di­ver­sity, there is still a chance to meet the longer-term goals and ob­jec­tives,” the EEA said in a re­port pub­lished dur­ing the COP25 sum­mit in Madrid.
