Batumi Action for Cleaner Air (2016-2021)


This document was prepared in accordance with the Reform Plan of the Environment for Europe process as a proposed outcome of the Eighth Environment for Europe Ministerial Conference. It contains an initiative aimed at improving air quality within the region prepared by the Bureau of the Executive Body for the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution.

At its special session in February 2016, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Committee on Environmental Policy welcomed the revised draft of the Batumi Action for Cleaner Air and approved it, as amended during the session, for submission to ministers at Batumi to be endorsed as a Conference outcome. In that regard, the Committee invited interested Committee members and observers to submit voluntary commitments to the initiative, preferably by Monday, 9 May 2016 (see ECE/CEP/S/2016/2, forthcoming).

Ministers will be invited to endorse the initiative. Interested countries and stakeholders are invited to submit their commitments to this initiative by using the annexed template.
