Warsaw approves mid-term environmental policy

Poland will spend €16.5bn for environmental purposes over the four years to 2012, according to a new environment policy program approved by the Polish government on Tuesday.

The document says Poland will face "difficult tasks concerning protection of the atmosphere and counteracting the climate change" and that complying with EU air quality standards will be a "challenge". During the period, Poland will focus on water and waste management and on completing the list of Natura 2000 sites by 2010.
