Aims to investigate and propose reforms to the national governance system – i.e. the mandates, rules, competencies and responsibilities of public institutions at different levels of subsidiarity – to ensure the effective and efficient achievement of climate objectives. For example, public administrations at all levels need to be empowered with the responsibilities, mandates and budgets to deliver decarbonisation and resilience.
Strategy for public participation and multi-level dialogue in the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP)
Italy, like other European countries, has been called upon to structure the process of updating the Integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) through public participation and effective multi-level dialogue, as envisaged by the Energy Union Governance Regulations and reiterated by the Commission’s Guidelines for revision of the Plan. This work shows the availability of resources, time and knowledge to make the NECP a plan that reflects the needs of the country, through a participation-based path.
