The Council of Ministers of the ecu group in 1984 followed a revision of the third neighborhood Programme on surroundings comprising agreement learn and concerted motion within the box of the consequences of pollution in eco­ platforms. those learn parts have been additionally brought within the 4th R-D group Programme on setting, followed through the Council of Ministers in 1986 and are topic back to agreement study and concerted motion. The fee of the ecu group is especially involved to extend the effectiveness of researcn tasks conducted in the nationwide programmes, and people undertaken on the group point. The fee has a tendency to advance an built-in medical process, together with not just the physico-chemical behaviour, the delivery and the deposition of airborne pollution but additionally the results of those toxins, particularly on dwelling organisms and ecosystems. in regards to the categorical factor of the consequences, the fee is attempting to enhance and advance a multi-disciplinary strategy associating biologists, pathologists, eco­ physiologists, and experts of soil sciences, in the concerted motion, in addition to inside coordinated learn projects.

La situation demeure certes preoccupante mais il n'y a pas lieu de ceder au catastrophisme. 000 ha, 959 se trouvent dans les forets gerees par l'ONF (soit 67,7 % du total) et 457 dans les forets particulieres (soit 32,3 % du total). On cons tate dans I 'ensemble, une aggravation de l'etat des feuillus et une amelioration de l'etat des coniferes. Toutefois, les feuillus restent nettement moins endommages que les coniferes, autant par la perte de leur feuillage que par la decoloration de celui-ci.

Limitation de vltesse, dont l'aspect favorable pour l'environnement se double, bien sur, d'un impact tres positif sur la securite. ~a France, pour sa part, cherche a faire progresser tous ces dossiers. J'aurai l'occasion de Ie dire de nouveau dans trois jours lors du prochain conseil des ministres europeens de l'environnement. J'accorde egalement une tres grande importance a un autre dossier europeen: Ie projet de directive sur les grandes installations de combustion. II s'agit en effet de la principale source de pollution acide en Europe : il serait utile que les etats europeens adoptent une reglementation stricte pour reduire cette pollution.

11 y manquait ces dernieres annees une veritable volonte de recherche scientifique : eh bien, ce symposium en est l'evidente manifestation, en 1987, annee europeenne de l'environnement, cet objectif est en passe d'etre atteint. Le programme DEFORPA va beneficier d'un nouveau contrat europeen de 8 MF et nous devons ici nous en feliciter tout particulierement. Dans Ie meme temps, la Communaute Europeenne s'apprete A arreter ses decisions sur Ie volume et les priorites du prochain programme cadre de recherche: I'environnement y occupera une place importante.
