Fostering Ambitious NECPs

Project Description

National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) are key strategic documents for advancing the transition to climate neutrality in EU Member States. In this project, led by the Centre for the Study of Democracy (Bulgaria), a review and critical assessment of NECPs in four Eastern European countries will be conducted, as well as an assessment of social preferences for instruments to promote climate change mitigation.

The aim of the project is to advance recommendations for developing holistic and impactful NECPs in Eastern Europe, and to promote an understanding of public perception of climate change mitigation measures, a crucial consideration for developing concrete action in the transition to net zero.
