The Clean Air Programme for Europe envisages a regular update of the impact assessment analysis, to track progress towards the objectives of the Directive and to serve as input into the regular Clean Air Forum.
The final version of the first Clean Air Outlook is now available, based on the finally agreed objectives of the co-legislators and the latest data on emissions and concentrations.
Four supporting reports from the International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis accompany the Outlook:
Among the updates which are reflected in the Outlook are:
The Clean Air Programme envisages a full progress review of the programme objectives by 2020. Article 11 of the NECD also envisages the first NECD report by 2020, covering progress towards the reduction commitments and the health and environmental objectives, additional measures needed to meet the objectives, and other issues. The next Clean Air Outlook is thus scheduled for 2020 in order to fulfil these obligations and reflects on the analysis of the National Air Pollution Control Programs due by April 2019.
