SEFIRA: Socio-economic implications for individual responses to air pollution policies in EU +27

Research project in Human Geography

Project's title: SEFIRA: Socio-economic implications for individual responses to air pollution policies in EU +27

Project's duration: 2013-2016

Contact person: Guy Baeten

Overview

Sefira has the objective of creating a European coordination of transdisciplinary scientific and socio-economic resources in order to support the review and implementation of air quality legislation by the European Commission (EC) led by DG Environment. The EC has now given increased attention to the socio-economic dimension of air quality policies in order to improve their effectiveness and acceptability. SEFIRA will coordinate some of the best scientific and socio-economic resources and will review air quality policies and legislation at the interface between environmental, economic and social sciences in order to achieve a deeper understanding of these complex issues. Individual behaviours and choices will be analysed in a socio-economic context ranging from the local to the European level. The main fields involved in the action will be atmospheric sciences, environmental and legal sociology, anthropology, geography and economics.
