Why does the EU give money to countries to clean land to prevent fires when the councils refuse to spend the money and clean the land?

Dear Ms. Sally T.,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The mandate of the EEA is to produce reports on the state and trends of the environment in Europe in its attempt to improve the environment and move towards sustainability in Europe. The EEA is not responsible for allocating funds to any parties and thus the nature and scope of your query fall outside our remits and competences. We can refer you to the EU page on EU budget expenditures that may be of interest for you:[…]/expenditure_en . You may contact the European Commission via its online service for further information:

With kind regards,
