CEE Climate Policy Frontier seminar on transport and buildings emissions / Berlin, 25 October

Downloads

This event in Berlin will present the quantitative results of an analysis conducted by Climate Analytics as part of the CEE Climate Policy Frontier project focusing on emissions reductions in the transport and building sectors in six Central and Eastern European countries: Bulgaria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia. For each of the countries and sectors, the team will present three sets of emissions pathways.

Climate action within the transport and building sectors in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region lags behind that of the European frontrunners and the overall pace of emissions reductions compatible with the Paris Agreement temperature limit target. Within the region, there are also significant differences in the effectiveness and efficiency of policy instruments, both in design and implementation.

The event will present the quantitative results of an analysis conducted by Climate Analytics focusing on emissions reductions in the transport and building sectors in six Central and Eastern European countries: Bulgaria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia. For each of the countries and sectors three sets of emissions pathways will be presented.

  • The first one will illustrate the continuation of the existing trends in the areas of residential buildings and transport until 2030.
  • The second set of emissions pathways will reflect a scenario in which best practices – understood as the optimal trends from the emissions perspective – in these two sectors are universally adopted by 2030.
  • Finally, the third set of scenarios will reflect emissions trends in these two sectors compatible with the Paris Agreement temperature limit.

During the event we will go beyond the numbers and discuss what measures allowed the leading countries to reduce their emissions and whether other countries of the region can follow their example. We will also investigate whether other countries – including Germany – can stand to learn something from their eastern neighbours. Finally, we will look at how European policy can do more not only to facilitate the adoption of best practices but also go beyond them and make it possible for the EU member states to meet the requirements of the Paris Agreement.
