MAGIC “Moving Towards Adaptive Governance in Complexity: Informing Nexus Security” seeks to understand how to govern complexity, with reference to five policy areas (Common Agricultural Policy; Natura 2000; Circular Economy; Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Directives; and Water Framework Directive). These policies, combined with many others, are utilized to enable the European Union and its Member States to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. However, achieving the SDGs is challenging; and the response has been critiqued as inadequate.
