At yesterday’s regular session, the government adopted the program for the implementation of the Clean Air Plan for  2019. It is based on four components: measures for dealing directly with the causes of air pollution, building public awareness from pre-school age to retirement, regulatory changes necessary for the transition to a low-emission energy system and establishing a platform for the coordination and monitoring of the implementation of the program, says government’s press release.

The program adopted yesterday defines how the planned two million euros will be spent in the fight for cleaner air. The money will be used to replace the existing “dirty” heating systems in households, kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, health facilities and administrative facilities in the most polluted cities in the country, as well as the purchase of air purifiers in indoor premises in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, health facilities and administrative facilities.

In the Action Plan for reduction of the air pollution for 2019, initiatives of three civil society organizations that are related to the creation of a separate web site are inserted, which will simply list all measures that should be implemented by state institutions and the installation of filters in small and medium enterprises, especially those in the woodworking industry.
