Abstract

This Communication highlights a package of measures, which the Commission intends to bring forward during the coming 24 months. They are grouped in four sections: crosscutting, energy, transport and industry.
The list of measures proposed in this Communication has to be situated against the background of efforts that the Commission is currently undertaking to integrate the environment into other policy areas.
The European Climate Change Programme (ECCP) has confirmed the need for continuous climate research, technological development and innovation. Further action is required to define with increased accuracy and certainty the evolution of the phenomenon of climate change and its potential impact in particular in Europe. Research will also be essential in identifying future cost-effective and socially acceptable energy and transport technologies and related actions and methodologies, which mitigate climate change.
It is important to continue investing in climate related research. This is reflected in the Commission�s initiative for establishing the European Research Area and the new Framework Programme. They provide the means for the implementation of the above objectives together with the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) initiative.
