A healthy and sustainable environment for present and future generations
By its nature, the environment transcends political, legal and man‑made boundaries. As a result, cross‑border cooperation within the European Union and between the EU and the rest of the world is essential if we are to tackle challenges which impact on us all. These range from droughts and floods to pollution and threats to Europe’s rich biodiversity. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are.
