Abstract : The French Environment and Energy Management Agency ADEME is working to prevent and reduce environmental noise particularly where exposure levels can induce harmful effects on human health. Focusing on road and railway traffic noise, ADEME helps local authorities and stakeholders implement their noise reduction plans. The national target is to reduce the equivalent noise level near the façades of buildings housing or apartments, hospitals or schools to below Lden=63 dBA. To reach this target, ADEME has developed two modes of action. Firstly priority is given to reducing the sources of noise, in particular traffic noise, by building noise barriers close to the roads. The second mode of action is facilitating sound insulation of the façades of buildings. ADEME’s budget for noise reduction is 160 million euros for the 5 year period: 2009-2013.
