Climate and energy policies provide lessons that can help strengthen EU foreign policy.
EU climate and energy policies show that the EU is flexible and able to address the different needs and circumstances of its Member States.
How can climate and energy policies benefit from the CFE?
The CFE could help make climate and energy policies a hallmark of the EU.
The CFE can help make EU funding, state aid, and the financial sector more beneficial for climate and energy policies.
Using the Treaty's passerelle clause, the CFE could help expand the ordinary legislative process in EU climate policies.
Strengthening the European Parliament is good for both democracy in the EU and effective climate policies.
