Germany 2016

The 32nd Task Force meeting of the ICP Modelling and Mapping of Critical Levels and Loads and Air Pollution Effects, Risks and Trends (ICP M&M) and the 26th CCE workshop were hosted by the German Environment Agency (UBA) in Dessau from 19-22 April 2016.

The meeting addressed the following issues:
  1. Latest findings in field and laboratory experiments and through model assessments of (air pollution) impacts on plant species diversity
  2. NFC progress in response to the Call for Data 2015-2017. Discussions (“training”) on practical issues regarding the modelling of plant species diversity in the context of the Call for Data.
  3. Integrated assessment reports and studies on critical load exceedances or effects on biodiversity in natural areas caused by changes in (agriculture) emissions on specified spatial and temporal scales
  4. Review of the Mapping Manual, ICP M&M - workplan 2016-2017, and other Task Force issues including reporting requirements to the second joint session of EMEP and the Working Group on Effects (September 2016).

63 delegates from 20 countries participated in the meeting.
