The current funding system of EU funding to national governments must change profoundly
A summary of conclusions of the ongoing EUKI-funded project Towards a Climate Neutral EU: Efficient Allocation of EU Funds
Experts of civil society organisations (CSOs) all over Europe are seriously concerned that if the current system of EU funding will continue, EU taxpayers’ money – instead of contributing to the attainment of the EU’s aims – might rather contribute to undermining the foundations on which the EU is based. This is the result of our survey conducted in various EU member states as well as the two other projects which followed the first one. At the same time, CSO experts made many proposals, which, in their opinion, if implemented, would greatly help the EU budget to achieve the EU’s aims, especially the EU’s climate and environmental targets.
