The European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change has published its annual 2024 work programme.

As an independent body dedicated to providing the European Union (EU) with scientific knowledge and advice on climate change, the Advisory Board has prioritised focusing on critical areas of mitigation and adaptation in its 2024 work programme.

With this year’s work programme, the Advisory Board aims to assess EU policy and implementation gaps, providing advice on necessary actions to enhance existing policies. In the first part of the year, the Advisory Board will publish a report on EU progress toward climate neutrality, including a policy consistency assessment with a view to the EU’s achievement of the 2030 and 2050 climate goals.

Furthermore, the Advisory Board will explore strategies for carbon dioxide removal and advance climate mitigation and adaptation efforts, specifically within the EU agriculture sector. To ensure inclusive and diverse perspectives, the Advisory Board will sustain ongoing collaborations with experts and stakeholders.

The European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate Change is an independent body providing the EU with scientific knowledge, expertise and advice relating to climate change. The Advisory Board evaluates policies and identifies actions and opportunities to successfully achieve the EU’s climate targets. It was established in 2021 by the European Climate Law and consists of 15 independent senior scientific experts covering a broad range of relevant disciplines.
