The Government approved the Framework Plan for Climate Change Mitigation 2008-2012, for compliance with the Kyoto Protocol. The aim of the Plan is to contribute proportionally to the Spanish commitment to compliance, while, at the same time, to be ready to incorporate the agreements being negotiated in Europe to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) for the period 2013-2020.
The Framework Plan quantifies the efforts to be made by each sector and identify the actions to be taken to reduce emissions.
The Framework Plan for Climate Change Mitigation in Catalonia 2008-2012 will be enacted through two specific action programmes, which will specify the action to be taken, detailing the department responsible, the budget, the deadline and the anticipated emission reduction.
The overall cost of implementing the Plan is estimated at 196.1 million euros per year.
