Abstract: The European Union is probably the region of the world where most
practical policy experimentation has taken place in the field of
environment and climate change. In the past twenty years the EU has
developed a comprehensive set of domestic climate policies and has emerged
as a global leader in international climate negotiations.

In his talk, Dr. Salay will give a background on EU climate policy, explain
the main objectives and targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions in
the EU, and update on the latest developments. He will also relate EU
climate policy to international relations and discuss challenges for the
future.

About the Speaker: Jürgen Salay is an expert on European climate policy
with close to 20 years of professional experience in preparing, negotiating
and implementing climate legislation on national and European Union level.
He has worked extensively in the field of international and EU climate
action, including on EU policies and measures, the European Emissions
Trading System and climate co-operation with Russia and Eastern Europe.

>From 1999 to 2009, he represented the EU in international climate

negotiations.

Dr. Salay works as a civil servant for the European Commission in Brussels
where he is monitoring EU Member States’ obligations to reduce their
greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020 and preparing legislation for
further reductions by 2030. In 2016 he supervised a report evaluating the
implementation of EU climate legislation in its Member States.

He holds a PhD in Environmental and Energy Systems Studies from Lund
University, Sweden, a Master in Energy and Resources from University of
California, Berkeley and a bachelor’s degree in Economic History and East
European Studies from Uppsala University, Sweden. He is the 2017-18 EU
fellow at The Center for West European Studies and the European Union
Center at the Jackson School of International Studies, University of
Washington, Seattle.
