The Green Deal is a package of strategies, goals and targets; realizing it as a whole requires that achieving certain targets does not adversely affect progress towards achieving other targets. Thus, it requires cross-compliance. While traditionally the concept of ‘cross-compliance’ has only been used in EU’s Common Agriculture Policy, the CrossGov consortium innovatively applies the concept to ocean governance. CrossGov defines cross-compliance as the delivery of multiple Green Deal strategies, goals and targets in concert, and assesses the role of coherence in policy design as well as implementation for achieving this. This policy brief introduces the concepts of policy coherence and cross-compliance and explains how they are interrelated. While policy coherence is particularly important for policy design and implementation, cross-compliance is a concept that specifically concerns the outcomes and impacts of policies.
