Improvement of the regulatory framework for the prevention of atmospheric pollution in public works in the AMB

In this projecte INSTA develops, for the Metropolitan Area of ​​Barcelona (AMB), with the aim of creating an optimal regulatory framework for the development of the works, incorporating real criteria regarding atmospheric pollution during its execution, especially taking into account the episodes of contamination in the phases established by the Generalitat de Catalunya as in the careful monitoring phase.

INSTA elaborates an analysis of normative instruments that the local authorities can develop to intervene in the regulation of the subject. In this way, in addition to assessing the possibility of developing a model decree model and/or creating an annex to the existing ordinances, we offer new alternatives that will be useful when regulating the measures. The different regulatory instruments that we analyze are compared, facilitating the identification of the most suitable for the regulation.

On the other hand, creating a regulatory framework is a very demanding job due to the difficulty of agreeing to different actors and to result in an applicable and realistic tool. In order to respond to these challenges, we contribute as an improvement to organize work meetings with participatory tools.
