The European Green Deal is currently placed at the top of the European Commission’s policy agenda with its main strategic goal to making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by becoming a modern, resource-efficient economy by 2050. But great ambition is accompanied by a correspondingly high degree of uncertainty borne out of the complexity of interconnected policy areas, ranging from environmental to energy, agriculture, industry, and transport, where necessary adaptations must be made. This is especially the case in times of turbulence that impose additional pressures making the achievement of set targets even more difficult, as exemplified both by the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion and unfolding crisis in Ukraine.
