The current report is a milestone for
preparing the Romanian climate change (CC) action plan. A CC
action plan should be based on the consolidation and
coordination of both mitigation and adaptation measures and
options. An important step in the elaboration of such a plan
is the selection of appropriate actions. This selection
requires the involvement of competent authorities in the key
sectors, including, in the case of Romania, transport,
energy, urban, water, agriculture, and forestry. The
screening approaches are used to facilitate a transparent
decision-making process in various fields such as
environmental impacts, dangerous substances, environmental
footprint of products, or CC actions. The report is
structured as follows: section one gives introduction.
Section two summarizes the usage of screening approaches in
the field of CC and environment by different European Union
(EU) member states and by the European Commission. Section
three discusses the main categories of mitigation and
adaption measures that can be included in a CC action plan.
Section four presents the screening approach and process and
describes several complementary tools (multi-criteria
analysis, cost-benefit analysis (CBA), cost effectiveness
analysis (CEA), modeling) that should be used when the
screening approach is insufficient. Section five provides a
conclusion and key recommendations.
