  • Summary and analysis of information on the Aug. 21-25, Sept. 20-23 and Dec. 13-16 meetings on cost-benefit analysis of sulphur emission control


This report summarises and analyses the results of three expert meetings held in Geneva on cost-benefit analysis of sulphur emission control. Hitherto unsuspected fields of uncertainty regarding emission inventories, modelling and the cost of control technologies are described and discussed in detail. In two areas: health effects and forest productivity, concentrations of sulphur compounds usually involved in transboundary transport and pollution (e.g. SO(2) concentrations below 25 microg m/3) have no demonstrable adverse effects. There seem to be no measurable damages to evaluate. Additional commentaries are also included on contingent cost- benefit analysis, a new tool that facilitates decisions on sulphur emission control.
