Supreme Administrative Court of Poland denies local resident the right to challenge air quality program
In January 2018 the Supreme Administrative Court of Poland upheld the decision of the Regional Administrative Court denying standing to a resident, to challenge the air quality program adopted by the Silesian Regional Assembly.
Poland has broken European air pollution laws by continuing to exceed annual limits of particulate matter (PM10) in the air – the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled.
The Advocate General of the Court of Justice of the EU has today issued a legal opinion confirming that increased logging in Poland’s Bialowieza Forest breached EU nature laws. The final ruling will be published in a couple of weeks.
The next few weeks are of real importance in the Białowieża Forest case. In this Q&A we cover everything you need to know about our battle to save Europe’s last primeval forest.
ClientEarth and other ecological groups have asked the new environment minister to grant the entire Bialowieza Forest national park status.
