The aim of the MA 2-4 project is to:

  • report on the data collected in accordance with the draft EoI Decision and the Framework Directive,
  • prepare a pilot report on European air quality and deposition and trends, and identify deficiencies and gaps.

The scope of the work, as indicated in the project plan, includes:

  • to collect data available from the Commission (DG XI), collected under the EoI Decision, and available in the APIS and EoI data bases,
  • to survey other bases of European air quality data, such as the EMEP data base,
  • to summarise the data, and present overview in the form of tables and graphs, forming a suitable background for evaluating the state and trend of European air quality,
  • to evaluate the European air quality, using effects relevant indicators, comparing the state and trend of air quality with relevant guidelines and critical loads.
  • to establish the requirements for EEA’s annual air quality reporting, as needed for EEA’s reporting tasks with the EU, and to the public.
