The ECCP, which was initiated in 2000, is the umbrella under which the European Commission and stakeholders discuss and prepare measures to fight climate change. Launched on 24 October 2005, the Second Phase of the ECCP will focus on new cost-effective measures and technologies to reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions. ECCP II will analyse what has been achieved under the first European Climate Change Programme and look for new options to reduce emissions, particularly in the fields of geological carbon capture and storage, passenger road transport, aviation, and adaptation to those effects of climate change that are unavoidable. With regard to aviation, it will build on the Commission strategy to curb greenhouse gas emissions from air travel that was presented in September 2005. Several working groups on specific issues will be set up at the conference. Their task will be to produce policy recommendations by 2006, which will support the Commission in developing and proposing new policies and measures.
