Policy Study | The EU and North Africa: Towards a just Twin Transition?
In an era marked by a deficiency in sustainable growth and a profusion of novel digital tools, the implementation of mutually-reinforcing green and digital policies comes about as a promising avenue to address the climate emergency.
The European Union has therefore developed a twin green and digital transition agenda that seeks to harmonize its previously autonomous policy areas. This new strategy is both inwards and outwards looking: as it bears a geopolitical dimension. This can be exemplified by the 2021 New Agenda for the Mediterranean which extends the geographical scope of the project to the EU’s Southern neighbourhood.
