Pontevedra province, with 942,000 citizens, joins the campaign with commitments to reduce air pollution (including climate pollutants) in key sectors, to improve air quality standards through institutional operations, and to collaborate with other administrations to create and approve local plans to promote air quality— all as part of efforts to fulfil the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

"Deputación Pontevedra (Provincial Council of Pontevedra) allocates 20 per cent of its budget to guarantee that all citizens have access to basic sustainable needs as per SDG 11 — Sustainable Cities and Communities, and it works to achieve certain goals, such as the reduction of per capita negative environmental impact of cities, paying special attention to air quality."

María del Carmen Silva Rego, President of the Deputación de Pontevedra
