LIFE and air quality

Sep 5, 2014 | News

(04 September 2014) – The latest LIFE Focus publication highlights the work of the LIFE programme in tackling threats to Europe’s air.

Titled “LIFE and air quality”, the 72-page brochure includes an insightful introduction to the topic, including interviews with an air quality expert from the European Environment Agency and one of the participants in a pioneering pilot exercise designed to help European cities better implement EU air policy.

Thematic chapters look at LIFE’s contribution to air quality across a number of key sectors: transport and urban mobility; monitoring and modelling; capacity building; encouraging behavioural change; agriculture; and industry, waste and energy.

This programme-level analysis is supported by specific project examples from across the EU, including in-depth case studies that can serve as an inspiration to policy-makers and project leaders, farmers and enterprises, organisations and citizens throughout Europe.
