How Will the EU Improve Air Quality Management at the Local Level?

Air Implementation Pilot – Lessons learnt from the implementation of air quality legislation at urban level(76 page pdf, European Environment Agency, Jun. 5, 2013)

Today we review a report that examined the findings and recommendations of a detailed look at how air quality is managed in 12 European cities, ranging from how data are monitored and put into inventories, to how they are used in models to how information is communicated to the public. Recommendations called for steps to make inventories more compatible, more training in modeling, more stringent siting of monitoring stations often near traffic and greater use of social network media to disseminate warnings and advisories and perhaps, one day, even putting all the air quality directives for Europe in one strategy document.
