Each regional or provincial administration engaged as beneficiary of the project will institute a “Stakeholder board” involving local authorities (municipalities or association of municipalities) as well as environmental and socio-economic associations that are somehow connected to the project’s topics and that are interested in following the project development. Where already established by regional laws, the associated beneficiaries will use the existing boards ensuring that the themes addressed by the project will be integrated in their agenda.

The Stakeholder Boards will be called at the beginning of the project and periodically during the project implementation (at least once in each project phase). The regional and provincial administrations will guarantee the maintenance of the Stakeholder boards also after the conclusion of the project, so as to ensure the involvement of key stakeholders in the implementation of the regional Air Quality Plans.
