Aviation emissions from England’s North West region

Nov 2009  Aviation in the North West (of England)
This report by Anderson, Bows, Wood et al develops a set of low carbon pathways for the North West region and uses these to explore three specific issues: 1) How can CO2 emissions from aviation be allocated to regional administrations and what contribution does aviation make to the North West’s total CO2 emissions? 2) How is the ‘demand’ for flying for work in the region constructed? and 3) What contribution does aviation make to the North West’s economy? The report, commissioned by the North West Development Agency, concludes with a suite of recommendations for the region’s policy makers on reconciling the North West’s emissions from aviation with the UK’s emission targets.
