I am PRO of the Bicycling Advocacy Group (Malta). There was recently a report by the EEA where Malta's traffic pollution was cited as being unacceptable by the EEA and Malta was told to invest in cleaner transport or to reduce traffic. Malta has the poorest cycling policy and uptake while cycling infrastructures are substandard rural (borrowed pedestrian footpaths limited to 6KPH) and actually do very little to encourage cycling. There are no urban cycling infrastructures. Cycling is sustainable zero emissions transport. What can BAG ask the EEA to do to prompt the government of Malta to rectify this situation?

Hello,
The EEA aims to support the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the EU and other EEA member countries by delivering timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to
policy-makers and the public. Please be aware that European environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies. It is the European Commission which has the responsibility of overseeing that Member States act in accordance with EU law. The Directorate-General for the Environment is the branch of the Commission responsible for European environmental policy and legislation. The homepage of the DG Environment is located at:
http://ec.europa.eu/environment/. Hope this clarifies.
