As the European Commission is in the process of carrying out a mid-term review of the implementation of the 6th Environmental Action Programme (6EAP), we have undertaken this study to contribute to this process and the ensuing policy debate it will hopefully generate. Agreed in 2002, the 6EAP sets out priority objectives to be attained by the EU in the field of environmental policy before 2012. It reflects a joint commitment of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission and thus provides an important benchmark against which to evaluate the evolution of policy.

This study evaluates the implementation of the 6EAP across all four of its ‘key environmental priorities’, but does not claim to be a comprehensive assessment covering all areas of environmental policy addressed in the Programme. The key findings with respect to the policy areas examined are summarized in four tables, providing an assessment of whether the main objectives have been achieved, whether there has been progress towards their achievement or no significant progress at all.
