Commission Staff Working Document - Principles and recommendations for integrating climate change adaptation considerations under the 2013-2020 European Maritime and Fisheries Fund operational programmes

Description:

The Commission proposal for the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) envisages climate action on adaptation and mitigation through the EMFF programmes. The proposal includes: clear policy objectives that shall be pursued through the six Union priorities, some of which refer to climate action; cross-cutting objectives like innovation, environment and climate change mitigation and adaptation to be pursued through the EMFF programmes; increased flexibility in designing the programmes which means that the measures can be programmed in relation to several Union priorities; an increased performance orientation of the EMFF based on ex-ante conditionality and on a performance review system; result orientation of the programmes - setting targets by specific objectives that are linked to Union's Priorities. This document aims to ensure that climate change adaptation objectives are embedded in the design of the 2014-2020 EMFF OPs (Operational Programmes). It is addressed to all stakeholders involved in the preparation and consultation of EMFF programmes, including climate experts and external stakeholders.
