Local Authority Prevention Network Projects 2020

The Local Authority Prevention Network (LAPN) programme, which started as a pilot demonstration programme in 2005, is now a well-established network involving all local authorities in Ireland. Through LAPN the EPA provides grant aid, technical support and training as well as networking opportunities to local authority staff with a view to building the capacity and expertise necessary to drive waste prevention and circular economy activities at local level.
