In the Labná auditorium of the Secretariat of Economic Development (Sefoe), Batllori Sampedro explained that the document consists of carrying out specific actions that will lead to an analysis and diagnosis on atmospheric monitoring, with the purpose of better environmental conditions , create awareness and promote citizen participation.

The program consists of six strategic lines: three focused on reducing harmful emissions and is divided in three transversal axes.

Basically what is sought is to reduce emissions from motor vehicles and the industrial sector, and also prevent fires in the wild.
