Clean Air Agreement Netherlands

Dozens of municipalities, provinces and the Dutch central government will sign the Clean Air Agreement on Monday – a promise to improve air quality in the Netherlands. Through a set of measures, they want to prevent about 5,000 premature deaths by 2030. The government is pushing 50 million euros in the agreement, municipalities and provinces tens of millions more, reports NOS. But the four parties to the negotiations will also have to find a way to cement a political response in their coalition agreement. NMOV programme: Emissions of methane-free volatile organic compounds (NVMCs) have decreased by more than 70% since 1990 thanks to national NVCMD programmes and agreements with the industrial sector. The government must take into account various factors and balance the importance of protecting both public health and economic interests. Some plans have not been implemented due to air quality requirements. Other plans are adopted, although they can have a negative impact on air quality. If the various parties do not reach an agreement, plans are sometimes submitted to the Council of State. Air pollution is caused by aviation, (road) transport, shipping, agriculture, wood burning and industry. Civity has developed, as part of a private-public partnership, an application that promotes air quality in transport.

In order to further reduce the health risks associated with air pollution, the air pollution agreement is being drafted. Therefore, in order to further reduce the health risks associated with air pollution, the air pollution agreement is being drafted. The focus is on the sustainable improvement of air quality by seeking values below the World Health Organization`s exposure limit values. For fine particles, for example, they are half the European limit values. It builds on the recent recommendations of the Dutch Health Council entitled “Health benefits through cleaner air”. As a rule, one cannot directly see or feel how clean the air is, unless the neighbors, for example, have just turned on the barbecue or an old moped passes by. These can cause not only olfactory nuisance, but also acute health problems or worries about the problem. Odour nuisance caused by neighbours` activities is the most common form of harassment. These include barbecues, fire baskets, fireplaces and multi-combination ovens. The nuisance is often accompanied by problems on the part of noisy neighbors.
