Making transatlantic relations green again: A common agenda for climate action

As part of a more multilateralist agenda, President-elect Joe Biden has stressed that combating climate change--such as pledging to rejoin the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement and proposing a $2 trillion climate plan to make the US climate neutral by 2050--will be one of his main priorities. However, US domestic roadblocks may present challenges to his goals. In light of the ambitions and constraints of the incoming Biden administration, this policy brief suggests key areas where the US and the EU could work together to deliver global climate action in the next two years.
