2019 Workshop on policies for delivering GHG reductions in effort sharing sectors (DG CLIMA)

Date: 15 October 2019

This workshop was organised as part of the project "Capacity Building to Facilitate Implementation of the Effort Sharing Legislation, with Focus on Ex-post Evaluation and Policy Lessons Learned" of DG Climate Action. The project team consisted of Ricardo Energy & Environment, Öko-Institut, VITO, and Wageningen Environmental Research.

The overall aim of this project was to strengthen Member States’ capacity to implement and meet their objectives under the effort sharing legislation. The specific objectives of the project were to:

  • Identify and share good practices of policies and measures in the Member States which reduce emissions in effort sharing sectors;
  • Improve Member States’ capacity for performing policy evaluations in particular ex-post evaluations; and
  • Support Member States in developing and putting in place appropriate policy measures.

On Tuesday 15th October 2019 the project delivered the first capacity building workshop on the Effort Sharing Regulation for policy makers, non-government organisations and business experts in Bucharest.
