The adoption of the 1999 Gothenburg Protocol within the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) and the 2001 EU National Emission Ceilings (NEC) directive has made for much stronger European air pollution policies. This volume offers an in-depth analysis of this key development from which decision-makers, students, academics, negotiators and international and non-governmental organizations will benefit substantially.
