Clean Air on the spot: Regional Challenges and Solutions

AIR cordially invites you to participate in the session:

“Clean Air on the spot: Regional Challenges evento green week 2013and Solutions”.

Organised as part of the official programme of the European Commission GREEN WEEK 2013 ‘Cleaner Air for All”.
This event is organised by AIR –  Air-Quality Initiative of Regions.  It will take place at “The Egg” in Brussels, on Wednesday 5 June 2013, from 9.30 to 11.00h.

Context:  EU air quality legislation leaves substantial discretion to Member States on how to achieve the detailed provisions and the main responsibility for implementation are often delegated to regional and/or local authorities. At the same time, many local and regional authorities lack the necessary legislative or financial means and/or experience in identifying and implementing the necessary cost-effective measures to execute those responsibilities. As a result, local/regional action may be insufficient or put in place too late. Transboundary emissions, outside the competence area for the local/regional authorities also add to the complexity. This part of the session will discuss these challenges, and seek to identify appropriate responses at EU level.
