Managing the crises of today and tomorrow

The Russian war in Ukraine is creating unprecedented pressure on the European economy and society, as well as on European security and solidarity. As European leaders are reacting to the war and its repercussions for energy and food systems and the wider economy, there is an enormous risk for myopic decisions, policies and investments that could end up being extremely costly for people as well as the planet.

The EPC Project “Managing the crises of today and tomorrow” looks at the challenges the EU is currently facing and will be facing in the future and how the measures taken now can provide immediate and long-term benefits to people, businesses, the climate, and the environment. The project will consider lessons from past crises, including the economic and financial crisis of 2007-2009 and the Covid pandemic, and take a closer look at the EU’s responses to the ongoing food and energy crises.

The project will comprise public and workshop discussions as well as research and interviews to draw lessons for managing future crises in a way that is aligned with the long-term objectives of the European Green Deal. The project findings will feed into a Discussion Paper and a Guidance document for policymakers, which will be published in the second half of 2023.

This project is organised under the auspices of the EPC’s Sustainable Prosperity for Europe Programme and has been supported by the European Climate Foundation, which cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained or expressed therein.
