Council of the EU
The Council will take note of a progress report on the draft directive on indirect land-use change (ILUC) amending the fuel quality (98/70/EC) and renewable energy (2009/28/EC) directives.
The Council will also adopt conclusions on "An EU strategy on adaptation to climate change", on the basis of the Commission communication on the subject.
In the follow-up to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development ("Rio+20"), the Council will:
- endorse conclusions on the overarching post-2015 agenda, underlining that this process should reinforce the international community’s commitment to poverty eradication and sustainable development and set out a single comprehensive and coherent framework for effective results at all levels;
- have an exchange of views on the links between the report of the UN Secretary-General's high-level panel on the post-2015 development agenda and the elaboration of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
A presidency briefing, agenda and background note will be published on the Council website closer to the date of the meeting.
