TitleEuropean Topic Centre on Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC-ACM)
CreatorNetherlands Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM); European Environment Agency (EEA)
DescriptionThe European Topic Centre on Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM) is the successor of the former (2001–2010) European Topic Centre on Air and Climate Change (ETC/ACC). As of 2015, the ETC/ACM, a consortium consisting of 14 European institutes, builds on the experience gained by the former ETC/ACC, with a narrowed scope on climate change mitigation. The area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation is included in the separate ETC on Climate Change Adaptation (ETC/CCA). The main task of ETC/ACM is to assist EEA in supporting EU environmental policy and legislative frameworks and to allow for adequate responses to emerging needs. Such support involves improving the reporting of monitoring and inventory data, information dissemination, and integrated assessments. To this end ETC/ACM analyses in a balanced way the causality chain of environmental policy making: Driving forces, Pressures, State, Impacts and Responses (DPSIR). The ETC/ACM activities focus on two main policy processes and frameworks: (1) climate change mitigation; (2) air pollution.
