The Croatian Air Pollution Prevention Association (CAPPA) is a volunteer and non-profit association that gathers persons and legal entities based in the Republic of Croatia with the aim of protecting and promoting common professional interests in the field of air pollution protection. CAPPA’s beginnings go back to the founding of the Yugoslav Air Protection Society in 1973 in Zagreb, following an initiative of Croatian experts, whereas its headquarters were in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina). Following the dissolution of Yugoslavia, from 1991 the Croatian component of the Society began functioning as an independent body. In 1993, the Croatian Air Protection Society changed its name to the one it bears today – the Croatian Air Pollution Prevention Association. The year before, Croatia became an independent country and a full member of the United Nations, whereas CAPPA joined the International Union of Air Pollution Prevention and Environmental Protection Associations (IUAPPA) at the World Congress in Montreal. The European Federation of Clean Air and Environmental Protection Associations (EFCA) was founded in 1997 and CAPPA has been its member since 1998. Ever since it was founded, CAPPA organized numerous professional meetings all over Croatia. In 1997, we introduced the first national meeting on air protection and since then, it has been held every two years. Together with IUAPPA, CAPPA also organized the 14th International Conference Air Quality – Assessment and Policy at Local, Regional and Global Scales@ in 2003 in Dubrovnik. The Association also organizes bi-annual professional seminars held abroad.
