CEP commissionED to explore relationships between global megatrends and planetary boundaries
CEP has been commissioned to lead the second Specific Contract, let under the CEP-led framework service contract for the European Environment Agency (EEA), to provide Assistance to the analysis of planetary boundaries at the European level, in support of SOER 2020. CEP is also leading a specific task in this project to explore and map the relationships between global megatrends affecting Europe and planetary boundaries. This specific task is linked to other tasks being led by GRID/University of Geneva (downscaling of the planetary boundaries to Europe) and SEI Stockholm/PBL looking at the interactions among planetary boundaries and the relationship with existing EU environmental policy measures.
The CEP task draws on previous work by CEP on GMTs at the national and regional level in Europe, and on planetary boundaries and tipping points, as well as the inter-linkages among the planetary boundaries being examined by SEI/PBL. This second contract provides an opportunity to bring together a number of key forward looking analyses undertaken by the EEA in support of SOER2020.
