2 Air pollution, transport and noise MAWP Strategic Area 1.1 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; to track progress towards, and provide outlooks for, the achievement of targets as defined in relevant EU and international legislation, including the long-term objectives of minimising impacts from air pollution and the decarbonisation of the transport sector.

3 What are the main concerns for Europe s air? Particulate matter (PM) and its threat to human health. Ozone (O 3 ) due to its health impacts and harm to vegetation. Eutrophication from high emissions of nitrogen oxides (NO x ) and ammonia (NH 3 ). These pollutants can cause harmful atmospheric deposition of nutrient nitrogen to sensitive ecosystems, such as grasslands and nutrientpoor lakes.

4 Exposure to harmful levels of air pollution EU urban population exposed to harmful levels of air pollution, according to: EU limit values WHO guidelines Up to a third of Europeans living in cities are exposed to air pollutant levels exceeding EU air quality standards. And around 90 % of Europeans living in cities are exposed to levels of air pollutants deemed damaging to health by the World Health Organization s more stringent guidelines. (based on 2011 data in AirBase).

5 Countries are exceeding EU air quality standards In 2011, 18 EU Member States exceeded the target value threshold for ozone (O 3 ) concentrations on more than 25 days. During the same year, 22 EU Member States exceeded the EU daily limit value for particulate matter (PM10) concentrations.

6 The European policy response EU legislation limits the emissions of pollutants and sets maximum levels for concentrations of these pollutants in the air. For pollutant emissions, the 2001 National Emissions Ceiling (NEC) Directive sets ceiling limits for emissions of SO 2, NO X, NMVOC and NH 3. These ceilings should have been met by all EU Member States by For pollutant concentrations, two Air Quality Directives (2008/50/EC and 2004/107/EC) set legally binding limits and target values for ground-level concentrations of outdoor air pollutants. These ceilings are supported by a range of sectoral measures controlling emissions from road transport, industry, etc.

18 Air Implementation Pilot: Implementation Communication on implementing issues Air Policy Review 7 Environmental Action Plan Focus on Implementation Implementation: not only compliance but collaborative work to build capacity and knowledge to get a more effective policy PILOT: 1. To identify implementation challenge 2. To identify how to address it 18

19 Air Implementation Pilot: description A joint project: DG ENV + EEA + cities experts Objectives: Better understand challenges faced when implementing AQ legislation. Exchange of experiences (good practices) also with other cities Develop general proposal to improve implementation. Not intended to solve AQ problems, but improve information base for future action Workstreams: Emission inventories Modelling Monitoring networks Management Information to the public 19

20 Air Implementation Pilot: conclusions Some conclusions from the working streams: Need of training and guidance, improved input data Lack of competences Need of further support from European legislation/regulations Feedback from cities for further steps Potential to strengthen local assessment and management capacities Follow up communication momentum (using existing networks?) Keep on supporting exchange of experiences (for instance, using new cost-effective technologies) 20

22 Thank you

23 How can Europe respond to the air quality challenges? Continued investment in the knowledge base Together with other techniques, air monitoring stations across Europe feed the knowledge base on air. While some of the monitoring stations may have been substituted by other techniques, it is important to maintain, and in certain cases improve the monitoring infrastructure. Further emission reductions Emissions of some pollutants from certain sectors have increased over the last decade. For example, emissions of PM have increased from homes and commercial facilities. Air pollutant emissions from farming have also changed little in the same period. Capacity building for implementation The gap between EU air quality targets and the reality of European air quality points to the need for better implementation of air quality legislation. Implementation can be improved by building capacity over time and by better understanding the specific problems when implementing environmental legislation. Countries to meet existing emission and AQ targets Too many countries are still not in compliance with EU emissions ceilings. These countries must make a renewed effort to reduce their emissions.
