As the sources and severity of noise pollution continue to grow, there is a need for new approaches to reduce exposure. The complex and pervasive problem of noise pollution has no single solution; it requires a combination of short-, medium- and long-term approaches and careful consideration of the nature of the noise source. There are many sources of noise pollution, each requiring tailored abatement measures.
On 24th April 2017, the European Commission hold the ‘Noise in Europe’ conference in Brussels, Belgium, to present and discuss the latest scientific evidence on the negative impacts of noise from transport on human health.
