Climate change poses increasingly severe risks for ecosystems, human health and the economy in Europe25 janvier, par Cornelis Brand — climate change impacts, climate change adaptation, extreme temperatures, weather and climate extremes damage, extreme weather and climate, climate change mitigation, climate change and health, threats to biodiversity, precipitation extremes
Europe’s regions are facing rising sea levels and more extreme weather, such as more frequent and more intense heatwaves, flooding, droughts and storms due to climate change, according to a European Environment Agency report published today. The report assesses the latest trends and projections on climate change and its impacts across Europe and finds that better and more flexible adaptation strategies, policies and measures will be crucial to lessen these impacts.
- emissions from transport, road transport, van emissions, eu emission standards for road vehicles, car emissions
Based on current testing rules in force, virtually all car and van manufacturers have met their specific CO2 emissions target in 2015, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The report confirms preliminary findings published earlier this year showing that the EU as a whole is well below its average emissions target for the same year.

Despite improvements in hazardous waste management, more measures would be required to prevent the build-up of hazardous waste across Europe, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report released today. The report reviews the application of waste prevention programmes across European countries regarding waste types that are considered to be most dangerous to human health and the environment.
- transport and environment reporting mechanism, sustainable transport, transport indicators, shipping, low carbon transport, aviation, eu emission standards for road vehicles, clean transport
What changes are needed in order to move towards a more sustainable mobility system in Europe? A European Environment Agency (EEA) report released today assesses the latest environmental trends in transport and presents examples of the different transitions needed in terms of technology, urban planning and societal behaviour to make transport more sustainable.
- f-gases, ozone depleting substances, air and climate, climate change
The production, import and export of fluorinated-gases (F-gases) continued to decline in the European Union, according to a new report published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA). F-gases, which are mainly used in cooling and heating equipment, have a high global warming potential and their phase-down is therefore essential to global efforts to mitigate climate change.
