Abstract

This publication provides general information on the European Commission's Environment and Climate Programme. Environment and Climate is one of the specific RTD programmes of the fourth framework programme (1994-98) and has been granted a budget of ECU 532 million over a 5 year period. One of the main aims is to gain understanding, in a global context, of the basic processes governing environmental change and climatic variation. The programme also sets out to assess the effects of environmental change (climatic and otherwise) on all socio-economic sectors. Another aspect is the development of technologies to monitor and protect the environment, and predict and reduce the risk of natural disasters. By adopting a comprehensive approach combining general science with the development of environmental technologies and taking socio-economic factors into account, the aim is to improve the quality of life for the people of Europe and build a firm foundation for sustainable economic development.
