Welcome to the UK Air Pollution Information System (APIS). Air pollution is one of the major environmental issues in the UK, with impacts occurring at local, regional and global scales. Much is known about the impacts on natural heritage features, with major steps already being taken in the development of abatement strategies both at national and international levels. It is clear, however, that there are still major gaps in the scientific understanding. This site provides a searchable database and information on pollutants and their impacts on habitats and species.

Nitrogen Thematic Action Plan

The LIFE Natura 2000 Programme in Wales has recently published a Nitrogen Thematic Action Plan, which details priority strategic actions to address nitrogen deposition impacts on Natura 2000 features across the network. It is one of a series of 11 Thematic Action Plans.  

Additionally, Natural Resources Wales have published a report to support the recommendations in the Thematic Action Plan “Assessing and Addressing Atmospheric Nitrogen Impacts on Sites” which examines the sources contributing to nitrogen deposition at Welsh Natura sites. Under the LIFE Improvement Programme for England’s Natura 2000 Sites (IPENS) Natural England have also published a series of Theme Plans, including one for nitrogen deposition. These are strategic plans explaining how they intend to deal with priority issues affecting multiple Natura 2000 sites.
