Focus Group Meeting 3

The third focus group meeting took place in Brussels on 28th November 2011.

This meeting focused on the co-benefits and cost-effectiveness of GHG reduction options and instruments. Many options and policy instruments for reducing the GHG emissions of transport have important co-benefits. This includes reduction of pollutant emissions, noise, accidents, adverse health effects and congestion. In addition to this the cost effectiveness of various reduction options and policies is another key parameter for developing decarbonisation strategies.  In this meeting both issues are discussed, starting from the draft results of the ongoing project from Task 1 (on co-benefits) and Task 8 (on cost effectiveness).
