EEA database on climate change mitigation policies and measures in Europe
This database contains a number of policies and measures (PaM) implemented, adopted or planned by European countries to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These PaMs have been reported by Member States under the European Union (EU) Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) in 2017. The search engine gives access to detailed information for each of the PaMs (or groups of PaMs). Member States report main characteristics of the PaMs, such as their description, objective, type, status, sectors affected, related Union Policy, entities responsible for their implementation, implementation period, etc. Where available, Member States also reported quantitative information on the GHG emissions savings achieved by PaMs (or groups of PaMs), both ex post (retrospectively) and ex ante (anticipated savings), as well as the projected and realised costs and benefits of the reported PaMs. Clicking on the ‘Name of policy or measure’ opens the PaM national report.
To facilitate reporting by Member States, the EEA has developed an online reporting questionnaire available via ReportNet and ‘Guidelines for reporting on policies and measures by Member States under Regulation (EU) No 525/2013 (EU Monitoring Mechanism Regulation)’, available at: http://cdr.eionet.europa.eu/help/mmr
The reported data are quality checked by the EEA and its European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM).
