February 2012 editorial

In the dark setting of the ongoing financial crisis, a series of very disturbing developments indicate that the environment is already being called on to pay a significant part of the mounting sovereign debt of European states. The response to the crisis on the part of national governments and the European Union puts the environment aside and seriously threatens to undermine important work and achievements of WWF’s work, at least in Europe, over the past 20-30 years.

 The purpose of this bulletin is to collect all available information on the environmental implications of the fiscal reform policies implemented in Europe and to provide WWF with a much needed tool in its role as “environmental watchdog” of the crisis.
