Phase-Out 2020: Monitoring Europe’s fossil fuel subsidies

Report

European governments and the EU are handing out more than €112 billion each year to prop up the production and consumption of fossil fuels, despite a pledge to phase out harmful subsidies out by 2020.

A new report by the Overseas Development Institute and Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, where MISEREOR is a member, has for the first time gathered detailed information on the support provided to fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal from 11 European countries and the EU between 2014 and 2016. CAN Europe urges Governments to stop subsidizing fossil fuels and invest into climate friendly development.

Strengthening people-driven change processes in Asia

Publication

The following documents discuss different ways of supporting marginalised people with shaping their change processes in a self-determined manner. This document is the outcome of the ongoing learning process around ‘people-led development’ of MISEREOR, selected partner organisations and their partner communities in Asia. It looks more closely at the roles and responsibilities MISEREOR, the partner organisations and marginalised communities could play in transformation processes, and the ‘how’ of project-related, yet self-determined, change processes with people at the centre. It critically reflects on ‘project business’ and the crucial roles of change facilitators and their organisations that endeavour to ideally respond to the needs of donors without compromising the participatory and empowering potential of such processes.

Reading the electronic version of the text provides the reader with additional short texts examples, explanations and comments that are not included in the printable version.
