Publication: Study on Waste Statistics – A comprehensive review of gaps and weaknesses and key priority areas for improvement in the EU waste statistics

Member States are required to report on waste management activities under a number of EU Directives and Regulations. Most (though not all) of the data is reported in order to monitor compliance with a range of binding targets on various aspects of waste management, including collection, reuse, recycling, recovery and landfilling of different waste streams. In order for the European Commission to be able to properly evaluate compliance, then reliable and relevant data is needed. Such data can also support decision making for future targets and to promote sustainable development at the national and international levels.
The aim of this study was to identify and analyse the main sources of uncertainties, inconsistencies and gaps in the reporting of waste statistics across the EU282 and to provide recommendations for improvement. Full article…

Study: Implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme – Mid-term review

The 7th Environment Action Programme (7th EAP) is the long term overarching strategy of the EU and its Member States in the field of environment and climate change. It covers a seven-year time frame (between 2014 and 2020) and is the first to set a long-term vision for policy-making in the field, until 2050. This European Implementation Assessment found that while the EAP scope remains relevant to current needs and adds value to EU and national policy-making efforts, its objectives are unlikely to be fully met by 2020, despite sporadic progress in some areas. Another key finding in this document is that environmental and climate-related concerns are not sufficiently integrated into a number of EU policies. These findings were made on the basis of publicly available sources of information (specifically aimed at informing the evaluation of the 7th EAP) and views shared in the course of the targeted stakeholder consultation in support of this document.
