image of Nordic perspectives on the Gothenburg Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone

The 1999 Gothenburg Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone, with focus on emissions of NOX, SOX, NH3, and VOC, is the latest protocol under UNECE's Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution. This report offers a Nordic perspective on implementation of the protocol in terms of the measures that have been introduced in the Nordic countries, the effects of these measures as well as how the reductions agreed under the protocol may be attained.

Emission trends and projections

In general, the goals for NOX reduction are proving the most problematic for parties to the Gothenburg Protocol. For instance, eleven EU member states predict that they will not reach the NOX ceilings in 2010, while emission reductions for the three other pollutants seem to be more on track (ENDS 2007). Likewise, the NOX goal seems to represent the toughest target for the Nordic countries.
