Application of the Emissions Trading Directive 2003/87/EC (Article 21)

This data set compiles Member State reports on the application of Directive 2003/87/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of the European Union (EU) establishing the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). Article 21 of the Directive stipulates that, each year, Member States should report on the application of the Directive. These reports should be based on the ‘Article 21 questionnaire’, which was adopted by the European Commission in Implementing Decision 2014/166/EU. Article 21 further stipulates that, on the basis of the Member States’ reports, the Commission should publish a report on the application of this Directive.

Biogeographical regions

Europe 2016 - The biogeographical regions dataset contains the official delineations used in the Habitats Directive (92/43/EEC) and for the EMERALD Network set up under the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats (Bern Convention). Changes in this version: The Pannonian region of Serbia was missing in previous versions and this has been corrected in the 2016 version. Some Arctic islands which do not belong to the European part of Russia and which were erroneously included in previous versions have been removed.

Linkages of species and habitat types to MAES ecosystems

For reporting on state and trends of biodiversity from an ecosystem perspective, information on the association of species and habitat types to ecosystems is required. The database contains those associations based on butterflies, mammal, reptile and amphibian species listed in European Atlases, all species and habitats considered for reporting under Article 17 of the Habitats Directive and all bird species considered for reporting under Article 12 of the Birds Directive. The species and habitat types are linked to the MAES ecosystems types, which are used under Target 2 of the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy. This allocation of species and habitat per ecosystem is done for each of the nine terrestrial biogeographical regions (according to the Habitats Directive) and each marine region (according to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive).

EEA reference grid

EEA reference grid

24 May 2013

The grid is based on the recommendation at the 1st European Workshop on Reference Grids in 2003 and later INSPIRE geographical grid systems. For each country three vector polygon grid shape files, 1, 10 and 100 km, are available. The grids cover at least country borders - plus 15km buffer - and, where applicable, marine Exclusive Economic Zones v7.0 - plus 15km buffer - (www.vliz.be/vmdcdata/marbound). Note that the extent of the grid into the marine area does not reflect the extent of the territorial waters.
