Abstract

Policy Research Interface Workshops Series. A Synthesis. This report summarizes the results of a series of research and policy workshops conducted by the Unit on Human Dimensions of Environmental Change; the Non-nuclear Energy RTD programme; the Climate Team from the DG for Environment, Nuclear Safety and Civil Protection, and the Forward Studies Unit. The workshops were intended to provide support for the Kyoto Conference on Climate Change, held in December 1997, and to produce recommendations for future climate policy in Europe. Workshops were held throughout 1997, and focused on the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHGs); policy-making; the distribution of emissions and the trading of quotas, and the role of forests as 'sinks' for GHGs. The report presents the findings of these discussions, and offers guidelines for future Accounting and Policy frameworks.
