The environmental rollback and discrediting of sustainable policies as a “luxury” in times of crisis continues and spreads in the EU. This issue of CrisisWatch highlights alarming cases from Spain, the United Kingdom, Greece and Portugal.
On a more positive note, WWF Spain and the other Spanish NGOs and local groups welcome the Government’s assertion that a project for the construction of a oil refinery in the area of Balboa-Extremadura Region will not go ahead, due to its serious environmental impacts and high economic cost.
We sincerely hope you find this e-bulletin interesting and useful to your work.
