The aim of the Environment programme is to contribute to the scientific and technical basis for the implementation of the EC environmental policy. The four main areas of research are as follows: (i) participation in global change programmes; (ii) technologies and engineering for the environment; (iii) research and economic and social aspects of environmental issues; (iv) technological and natural risks. Detailed objectives and research tasks for each of these areas are outlined and targeted projects, directed towards the solution of major trans-European problems, are presented. Finally the implementation and coordination of the research effort is described.
