Mapping of nomenclatures relevant to emission reporting


Assessing the state of the environment, pressures from human activities and their relation with policies implies drawing on numerous data sources. To-date, there was no common approach as to how each of the categories in these data sets is mapped to over-arching sectors, nor was there consensus on how these sectors should be called and defined by the EEA. The below mapping is an attempt to overcome these inconsistencies in public-facing products published by the EEA. The starting point for this work was a mapping that the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) Centre on Emission Inventories and Projections (CEIP) had drafted. It is the result of a concerted effort by multiple content groups at EEA as well as the EIONET NRC on Industrial Pollution. Input was also received from the European Topic Centre Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM).
