This report focuses on the policy guidelines for management of pollution control, specifically for air quality – one of the priorities identified by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) of the Government of India (GoI). The work forms part of the Technical Assistance for the EU-India Action Plan Support Facility (APSF) – Environment Technical Assistance project. The objective of this activity is to contribute the European Union’s (EU) knowledge of Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) and to share its experience on it considering India’s present situation, current issues, future challenges and options for appropriate solutions, and also to learn from the EU’s positive and negative experience and continuing challenges, and provide feedback in revising the EU IPPC Directive.
