Programme of Cross-Border Actions for the quality of the Air of Greater Geneva (PACT’Air)



With almost 1 million inhabitants in the cross-border area of Greater Geneva, the improving of the quality of the air constitutes a big health challenge, as well as being greatly desired by the populations. This finding is widely shared between France and the Swiss Confederation. As the actions of the people living on one side of the border have repercussions on the quality of the air breathed by the those living on the other side, it is consequently essential to have a shared vision, common tools and coordinated management of the quality of the air at the level of the Franco-Swiss area that is Greater Geneva.
