The External Dimension of the Sixth Environment Action Programme: An Evaluation of Implementing Policy Instruments
This report evaluates the EU’s progress on the external dimension of the 6EAP, with a particular focus on the EU’s consumption and production of global natural resources. It explores the EU’s activities in pursuit of its objectives set out in the 6EAP which relate to the external dimension by examining relevant external and internal policy instruments. In this way, the report covers not only the ‘international aspects’ of EU activities in relation to the external dimension, ie its activities on the global environmental governance stage, but also ‘internal (policy coherence) aspects’ of the external dimension, ie the external impact of its internal policies.
