THE Scottish Government has launched the ‘Cleaner Air For Scotland 2’ (CAFS 2) strategy, entitled ‘Towards a Better Place for Everyone.’
The five-year programme sets out the government’s revised quality framework. It aims to maximise the benefits from action to tackle poor air quality and build on the linkages with other key government strategies that cover transport, climate change, health, environment, place, planning, energy and land use.
In an introduction to the strategy, Màiri McAllan MSP, Minister for Environment, Biodiversity and Land Reform wrote: “All of this is necessary if we are to secure our vision of Scotland having the best air quality in Europe – a quality of air that aims to protect and enhance health, wellbeing and the environment.”
The new strategy follows the recommendations of Professor Campbell Gemmell’s independent review of the previous air quality strategy.
