A public debate on the ‘EU Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution’ (See: October ezine) took place in the European Council under the UK Presidency on 2 December 2005. A directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe was on the agenda for discussion and input was accepted from members of civil society and NGOs. As you know, EFA produced a joint position paper on this issue with the EPHA Environment Network.(EEN) outlining the importance of clean air and the need for tough regulations on air quality. Opinions were given by representatives from the Environment ministries of various EU Members States. The strategy is in its very early stages and we are waiting to see when and how it is to officially proceed through the European Parliament. There will be further opportunities for EFA members to influence the outcome.  You can keep tracking the process also via EU Legislative Process website.
