Habitats Directive: Air Quality & Ecological Impact Assessment - Joint IAQM/CIEEM Discussion Meeting

Thursday, 16 July 2015 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm
Arup, London

Air quality practitioners quantify the ecological impacts of air pollution, but rely on ecologists to assess the effects.

This event shall bring together the two professions in order to learn how each contributes to the overall process and to discuss how the assessments could be improved.  

The meeting will raise the question ‘is new guidance required to assist our members?’
