Belgium shares out Kyoto costs

Belgium's Flanders region should bear the brunt of measures to cut greenhouse gases, according to the federal environment ministry. It recommends that Flanders spend €159.6m, Wallonia just €31.5m and Brussels €14m, in each case to cut emissions by 5.9% between 1990 and 2010. The federal government should spend an additional €22.5m to bring the national emissions cut to 7.5%, it says. Under a "business as usual" scenario, it warns, emissions would rise 27% in Brussels, and 17% in Flanders, but only 1.4% in Wallonia. Belgium launched a national climate action plan in March (EED 07/03/02). See website.
