Actively anticipating the unintended consequences on air quality of future public policies (ANTICIPATE) is a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project forming part of its Clean Air Programme. It will bring together policy analysts and policy makers from UK central government, devolved administrations and local and regional authorities, stakeholders from business and civil society organisations, and academics and researchers to explore forthcoming policy initiatives for their consequences (intended or unintended, positive or negative) on air quality.
