Danish authorities maintain green spending

Central government cutbacks are now expected to total DKr500m (€67m) by 2006 (EED 24/06/03). Jyllands-Posten spoke to the mayors of 206 local authorities, more than three-quarters of the total, of which 80% said they were planning to spend about the same amount next year. Thirteen per cent said they were increasing their environmental budgets, while 7% expected to cut them. See article.
