Recap the 6 th eap

Recap - the 6th EAP

  • Thematic Strategy on air pollution

    • Coherent and integrated policy and measures & consistent with other environmental policies

    • to be adopted by July 2005

  • CAFE Programme to provide the technical basis

  • TS to establish the “level of ambition” that informs future policies such as the national emissions ceilings directive


Where are we

Where are we?

  • CAFE Programme nearing its end

    • Integrated assessment modelling work essentially complete (policy scenarios chosen)

    • Benefits and costs work completed for these scenarios and the baseline

    • Macroeconomic modelling of economic impacts also completed for the policy scenarios

  • The TS “package” is now in the internal Commission decision making process prior to adoption


The ts package

The TS Package

  • Thematic strategy only a 15 page communication adopted by the College

  • Legislative proposal to revise/combine existing ambient air quality legislation (“Cleaner Air For Europe Directive”)

  • Impact assessment (ca. 100+ pages) includes more analysis of the problems and of policy options - (English)

  • Adoption by College before Summer? (end June-July)


Next phase review of national emission ceilings

Next Phase - review of National Emission Ceilings

  • Resource constraints dictate that the review of the NECD will come after the Thematic Strategy

  • The Thematic Strategy will contain a clear indication of the level of environmental ambition to be pursued by the revision of the NECD

  • The review of the NECD will be a fine-tuning exercise based upon updated energy projections, and emissions forecasts & inventories (e.g. PM2.5, ammonia); though other issues will be addressed

    • Emissions trading, maritime emissions, etc.
