The Working Group will examine the experience with European and US assessment processes dealing with the long range transport of tropospheric pollutants and consider the possible implications for design of assessments on the issues of acid rain, tropospheric ozone and climate change in the U.S. In doing so, it will continue to address themes raised during the first half of the week: the characteristics of particular institutions and their role in influencing the assessment process and the outcomes of assessment; the extent of political control and influence in the assessment process; and the ways in which links between institutions, information and social/political actors influence the assessment process and its outcomes.
