Following the publication of the draft Clean Air Plan for Wales, Welsh Government is seeking to appoint a Clean Air Advisory Panel to provide expert advice on air quality matters in Wales. The advice of the Panel will support the development of evidenced based policy and legislation to deliver improved air quality for the benefit of human health and the natural environment.

- Collaborate with relevant government departments and other advisory groups at UK, Wales and local levels
- Encourage and maximise opportunities for innovative solutions which help to improve levels of airborne pollution
- Advise the Welsh Government on future evidence needs and how they can be met.
The panel will meet quarterly at the Welsh Government offices in Cardiff with additional special meetings as necessary. Panel members will be required to;
- Attend meetings in person or by teleconference as appropriate
- Review and provide comments on relevant papers or reports
- Undertake reviews and collaborative work as required in order to facilitate prompt decision making.
