LIFE Integrated projects

LIFE Integrated Projects were introduced to enable statutory authorities in EU Member States to implement environmental and climate legislation to the fullest extent. Integrated Projects provide funding for plans, programmes and strategies developed on the regional, multi-regional or national level. They help Member States comply with key EU legislation in six areas: 1) Nature 2) Water 3) Air 4) Waste 5) Climate Change Mitigation 6) Climate Change Adaption.

Improving air quality in Slovakia and surrounding countries

The aim of the 8-year project, slated to start in January 2020, is to support and reinforce the administrative structure and capacity to ensure effective implementation of Air Quality Management Plans as well as to promote air quality measures and increase the public awareness about the importance of air quality and its improvement.

Coordinated by the Slovak Ministry of Environment, the project will be implemented also by the Slovak Environment Agency, six self-governing regions (Banska Bystrica, Trencin, Trnava, Zilina, Presov, Kosice), Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute and Energy Research Centre – Technical University of Ostrava. PEDAL Consulting will be responsible mainly for the project management and dissemination tasks. Additionally, about 50 other stakeholders will be involved in the implementation phase in various capacities.
