The distance-to-target indicator (DTI) measures the deviation of actual emissions in 2003 from a (hypothetical) linear target path between 1990 and 2010


European data


Additional information

A positive value suggests an under-achievement by 2003 and a negative value represents an over-achievement by 2003. The DTI is used as an early indication of progress towards the Kyoto targets. It assumes that the countries meet their targets entirely on the basis of domestic policies and measures. Countries with base-years other than 1990 are Hungary (average 1985-1987), Poland (1988) and Slovenia (1986). Due to lack of data, Cyprus and Malta are not included.
