Title: BIOFUELS SUSTAINABILITY CRITERIA Relevant issues to the proposed Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from
renewable sources {COM(2008) 30 final}
Abstract
The role envisioned for liquid biofuels for transport has come under increased scrutiny in the past year or two, due to the potential social and environmental impacts associated with scaling up biofuels production and use from its low level?currently representing about 1% of transport fuels globally. The proposed EU Directive setting a target of 10% biofuels in transport sector by 2020 has therefore raised a number of concerns. The concerns about sustainability are addressed within the proposed Directive through criteria related mainly to GHG emissions, but also to biodiversity and other environmental impacts. The use of first generation biofuels in temperate climates is land-intensive and inefficient in technical terms, whereas first generation biofuels in tropical climates and second generation biofuels in general?offer a much more effective use of land resources. The use of GHG reduction criteria can provide incentives for producers to rely on the most productive feedstocks when sourcing biofuels for the EU market, which will often mean import of biofuels. A threshold of 50% or more would tend to eliminate many of the first generation biofuels produced in temperate climates. Member States should be encouraged to link financial incentives to the GHG reduction capabilities. Moreover, such incentives could be better linked to development cooperation in the case of imports, so as to insure that Least Developed Countries (i.e. in Africa) can gain access to larger markets rather than only the major producers such as Brazil. The calculation of GHG emissions associated with biofuels is complicated by the addition of factors associated with land use change, since the GHG impacts of land use change are beset by uncertainty both in physical terms as well as in the attribution of particular changes to production of particular biofuels. A further complication is introduced when indirect land use changes are incorporated, since these occur through combinations of market forces, illegal land use transformation, and regulat

Title: BLOSSOM — Bridging long-term scenario and strategy analysis: organisation and methods
Abstract
Following the completion of the case studies, the present report analyses their key findings and presents a cross-country comparison. The main aims of this study are: • to identify a 'toolbox' of approaches to institutionalising long-term futures thinking in government; • to identify which countries have introduced respective approaches and tools, in order to identify the pioneers and to see which methods have become commonplace and which have not; • to look for commonalities and differences and identify the factors that can explain the success or failure of efforts to embed a long-term perspective in policymaking.[Author vide copyright]

Title: Calculation of nutrient surpluses from agricultural sources
Title (other): Statistics spatialisation by means of CORINE land cover Application to the case of nitrogen
Abstract
The assessment of potential losses of agricultural fertilizers to waters require prior calculation of nutrient balance (surplus). This study shows how the use of CORINE land cover allows calculating comparable surplus values at the river catchment level, despite heterogeneity and high degree of aggregation of the available statistics for the two test basins (Loire, (F) and Elbe (D, CZ)).[Author vide copyright]

Title: Children?s health and environment
Title (other): A review of evidence ; a joint report from the European Environment Agency and the WHO Regional Office for Europe
Abstract
This publication provides an overview of the available evidence of the relationship between the physical environment and children's health. It identifies both research needs and policy priorities to protect children's health from environmental hazards. The report was prepared by the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, Rome Operational Division, with support from the European Environment Agency. It is based on background papers prepared for the Third Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health, held in London in 1999.[Author vide copyright]

Title: Climate change and a European low-carbon energy system
Abstract
This report presents an assessment of possible greenhouse gas emission reduction pathways made feasible by global action and a transition to a low-carbon energy system in Europe by 2030. It analyses trends and projections for emissions of greenhouse gases and the development of underlying trends in the energy sector. It also describes the actions that could bring about the transition to a low-carbon energy system in the most cost-effective way.[Author vide copyright]

Title: Climate Change and European Fisheries
Abstract
Climate change is expected to result in several processes that can have an impact on the biological productivity of the marine ecosystems and on the distribution of marine resources. The purpose of the present study is to provide an analysis of the probable impacts and consequences of climate change on European Union marine fisheries and aquaculture. The basis of the study is a comprehensive review of approximately 200 relevant and up-to-date scientific literatures with particular reference to the fisheries resources that are relevant for the European Union fisheries both in the Atlantic and in the adjacent seas (Mediterranean, North Sea and Baltic). The effects of climate change on fisheries will affect a sector already characterised by full utilisation of resources. Changes in the productivity of the ecosystem will have a profound effect on the sustainability of the fisheries. Because of that; climate change is currently the target of very extensive research for estimating how fish stocks will develop in the future and other issues having a significant impact on European Fisheries. Seven possible policy options have been identified and are discussed in the study. [European Parliament]
