The EU's sixth environmental action programme was published today in the community's official journal. Effective for ten years from 22 July this year, the programme sets out the EU's strategic approach to environmental protection and is to be followed by a series of thematic strategies for priority problems, including concrete objectives and timetables. The action programme was agreed politically in March (EED 14/03/02), officially becoming decision 1600/2002/EC of the European parliament and of the council of ministers on 22 July.
