59 municipalities in Malopolska and one association of municipalities declared their participation as co-beneficiaries of LIFE integrated project LIFE “Implementation of the Air Quality Plan for Małopolska Region – Małopolska in a healthy atmosphere”.

Due to lack of grant from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management, the partners were faced with the need to increase its financial participation in the project budget. In this situation, 10 municipalities and Energy Savings Company ESCO have to resign from participation in the project.

At the same time 31 new municipalities declared their willingness to join the project and participate in the key actions to improve air quality in Małopolska.

Implementation of the project will depend on the outcome of negotiations with the European Commission, which must accept changes to the project partners.
