DESCRIPTION

PANGEA is the leading partner of the consortium that has been granted with this contract, still to be started.
Its purpose is to provide the essential elements for the establishment of a fully functioning monitoring mechanism of greenhouse gas emissions in Turkey, in line with the EU Monitoring Mechanism Decision 280/2004/EC, while taking into account relevant and likely aspects of the expected revision of the Decision.
