EEA activities

Change language
The EEA assesses long-term prospects for Europe's environment and the consequences of key-policy choices using various methodological approaches. The aims are to add value to current policy discussions, by consistently producing information with a broader and longer-term perspective, and to help organise the European environmental information systems to encompass information on future trends. The EEA also contributes knowledge and expertise to scenario-based assessments at pan-European and global levels, such as the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment or UNEP's GEO-4 scenarios.

 

EEA's scenarios activities contribute to the long-term perspective of the European 'state of the environment' report that is published every five years. In 2010, the European environment — State and outlook report was published addressing a range of environmental concerns and their common driving forces in an integrated way and highlighting prospects for Europe's environment to the year 2030 and beyond.

Outlooks are also a component of regular assessment processes, e.g. greenhouse gas emissions and indicator-reporting processes of the EEA. Outlook studies and indicators are analysed on a regular basis. The review of quantitative models is another frequent exercise.

PRELUDE (PRospective Environmental analysis of Land Use Development in Europe) uses an innovative mix of illustration, text and state-of-the-art models to simulate five contrasting future environmental scenarios for a Europe affected by changing patterns of land use, climate change, agriculture and demographics. A new area for scenario-based assessments is the analysis of ecosystem services. 

The EEA is also involved in scenario processes at the pan-European and international level. The pan-European environment: glimpses into an uncertain future investigates the key driving forces and uncertainties of future environmental changes for the pan-European region. EEA also contributed to the UNEP Global Environment Outlook 4 report and the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.

The EEA also helps capacity-building for scenario development in its member countries, with regular outreach and training workshops.
