Note: The Project ended on 14th November 2012

Main Project Beneficiary
Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation (MoEU)

Project Objective
The Project contributed to an overall objective, which was “to improve the environmental conditions in Turkey by the implementation and enforcement of the EU environmental acquis in the frame of ambient air quality.”

The project ran from to March 15, 2011 to November 14, 2012.

Its specific purpose was to help determine National Emission Ceilings for Turkey for the pollutants referred to in National Emissions Ceilings Directive (NECD). The project involved four major activities:

  • Developing a national emission inventory for four pollutants (SO2, NOx, NMVOC and NH3) and developing emission projections assuming a number of scenarios – by January 2012.
  • Preparing a cost-benefit analysis for implementing the NECD, assuming a range of possible emission ceilings – by April 2012.
  • Preparing a regulatory impact assessment report for the implementation of the NECD – by September 2012.
  • Developing guidelines for the preparation of NECD emissions inventory and projections in future, with the objectives of making effective use of methodologies and of making inventory improvements – by January 2012.

Links with Twinning Project TR081BEN02
The Technical Assistance (TA) and Twinning Projects are designed to complement each other. Whereas the TA Project is designed to produce technical outputs from its four major activities, the Twinning Project is designed to strengthen the institutional capacity in Turkey for transposing the NECD and for undertaking the necessary technical activities in future.
