The 12th Petersberg Climate Dialogue, hosted in Berlin on Thursday (6 May), failed to deliver on expectations of increased financial support for poorer countries.
Ahead of the Conference on the Future of Europe, a year-long dialogue with EU citizens that kicked off on Sunday (9 May, Europe Day), EURACTIV Croatia spoke to the European Commission Vice-President Dubravka Šuica, in charge of the conference organisation, about the overall objectives, and expectations.
In the context of the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework and the need for support to Member States in managing the EU’s common external borders, the European Commission adopted a proposal to establish an instrument for financial support for border management and visas under the proposed Integrated Border Management Fund. The European Parliament is due to vote at second reading during the July plenary session on the agreed text resulting from interinstitutional negotiations.
