European Community Fifth National Communication: Stakeholder Engagement

Policy field(s)


Environment, Climate change

Target group(s)


European organisations with a relationship to the climate change agenda

Period of consultation


                        From 23.03.2009  to 04.05.2009

Objective of the consultation


The European Commission is in the process of preparing its Fifth National Communication to the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) and, as part of this process, is inviting European organizations to contribute to this process through this questionnaire.

The European Community National Communication is an official EU document that should reflect the activities taken by the European Community since the Fourth National Communication with respect to climate change. This covers activity related to mitigation and adaptation at both the EU and international level. Member State level activities are reported separately within their own National Communications.

The National Communication is an official reporting document and will take a purely factual approach.  However, within this context, some input from stakeholders may be included where such contributions are deemed relevant.  

The questions below aim to capture areas where stakeholders may have added information that could be used in the national communication.  Responses are invited from European organizations with a relationship to the climate change agenda.
