Recent and on-going Eionet & EEA activities

Air Pollution, Transport and Noise Group (EEA)
16th Joint TFEIP/EIONET meeting, Milano, 11-12 May 2014
Delivering the MAWP 2014-2018
Air pollution, transport and noise
Objective
To support and inform policy development and implementation in the areas of air pollution,
transport and environment and noise by means of data, information/indicators and assessments.
Specifically:
– to collect, process, quality assure, store and disseminate historical and where possible up-to-date (i.e.
near real time) data underpinning these policies;
Data compilation, quality assurance, dissemination,
– to support countries with the reporting of data towards the European Commission, the UNECE
international reporting (LRTAP)
Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) and the EEA;
(datasets,
dataviewers,
maps,
‘up
toReportnet,
date’ information
etc) to
– to adapt and further
develop
EEA information
systems
(e.g.
databases, viewers)
accommodate anticipated changes in country reporting;
– to make use of Copernicus atmosphere services to support the EEA data and information products on
air quality, including near real time data;
– to support countries and the European Commission with relevant analyses and compilations of the
reported information and with direct policy support;
tracking
to targets,
indicators
– to track progressPolicy
towards,support,
and provide
outlooksprogress
for, the achievement
of targets
as defined in relevant
EU and international legislation, including the long-term objectives of minimising impact from air
pollution and the decarbonisation of the transport sector;
– to produce integrated and targeted assessments of air pollution, noise and transport and
environment, the impacts on human health, climate change and the environment and the
effectiveness and co-benefits of policies and measures in these areas as well as in related
environmental areas; Thematic assessments, cross-cutting activities
– to increase knowledge and understanding of air pollution and climate change inter-linkages, pursuing
an integrated approach to promote efficiencies and improved implementation.
Multiannual work programme 2014-2018

policy framework
Strategic Areas
1. Informing policy implementation

EIONET priority data flows

Eionet priority data flow
criteria are agreed, stable,
well-defined objectives that
provide a focus for countries
reporting across thematic
areas.

Dataflows typically are relied
upon by EEA for indicators,
assessment reports etc,

Two air pollutant emissions
dataflows:
 AE1 LRTAP data
 AE2 NEC Directive data

EEA/NFP WG on „Eionet - Priority - Data – Flows”
… to support achieving the objectives of the EEA 2014-2018 MAWP
Composition of the EPDF working group
The following countries have confirmed their participation:
•
•
•
•
Austria
Belgium
Switzerland
Germany
• Finland
• Ireland
•
•
•
•
Luxemburg
The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
Sweden
Slovakia
• Turkey
• United Kingdom
Cross-EEA representation: ACC (2); NSV (2), IDM (1), PAN (1).
Co-chairs: EEA (Martin Adams) and Belgium (Jan Voet).
Terms of reference – EPDF WG outputs
Deliver a joint EEA/Eionet proposal to the EEA Management Board
(Nov 2015), including:
• Revised definition and selection criteria guidance for priority
data flows;
• Proposed list for an updated set of priority data flows according
to the developed criteria;
• Proposal for revised evaluation criteria for monitoring reporting
of data flows;
• Proposals for longer term development of the priority data flow
report to potentially cover a broader range of data flows
(not just priorities).
17 February 2015 – first meeting of EPDF WG
Examples of key discussion items:
• In the shift over 20 years from many voluntary data flows to
most being covered under (EU) legislation, what does it mean
for a data flow to be an Eionet ‘priority’ data flow?
• What do we mean by ‘data’? Just talking about numerical data
or also the delivery of descriptive data? (e.g. CC adaptation
reports)
• Thinking about why we still score reporting performance –
does the original rationale for scoring still exist?
• How might we strengthen the ‘data quality’ component, i.e.
assessing whether reported data is fit for purpose
• etc...
