Purpose: The conference will give stakeholders insight in recently established energy and climate change baselines and the corresponding projections for air pollution up to 2020. The conference also focuses on how the abatement of classic air pollutants and greenhouse gases are linked. Participants will be informed how this information will be used as a starting point for the calculation of new national emission ceilings for 2020. However, these projections are and will be used further in other policy contexts as well.
