Perceived and desired EU budget expenditure on climate/environment and immigration (% of respondents)

A recent Eurobarometer on the future of Europe confirms the salience of the policy areas in question. Climate change is deemed the main global challenge for the future of the EU (45 % of respondents) across the Union as well as in 11 Member States. Mentioned by slightly more than one quarter of respondents (27 %), forced migration and displacement are ranked at fourth place across the EU, and are regarded as the Union’s main global challenge in two Member States. Stronger solidarity among Member States is seen as the second most helpful development for the future of Europe (30 % of respondents) and is the highest ranked reply in 11 Member States.
Looking more specifically at public opinion on the EU budget, Figure 3 shows how the perceptions and expectations of EU spending on climate change/environmental protection and migration issues have evolved since 2008.
