  • Official closing ceremony was organised on 26th January 2017

  • Inventory for 2014 annual emissions has been reported towards UNECE/EEA

With the support of the Twinning project the national emission inventory for the year 2014 was produced. The emission inventory as well as the Inventory Informative Report (IIR) for the year 2014 were prepared and reported according to the obligations of the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (UNECE/LRTAP).
During this reporting round for the first time the historical emissions for whole trend period of 1990-2014 were calculated and reported. The quality of the inventory and IIR were improved significantly. Number of missions by emission inventory experts from Environment Agency Austria were dedicated to improve the emission inventory methodologies (gap filling, gathering of proper activity data, and determination of implied emission factors) and introduction of the key source analysis as well as trend analysis calculations. In addition the implementation of the QA/QC system in the preparation of the inventory was introduced. The emission inventory and the report for 2014 and previous years are available on the following website
