Carried out by: Department of Labour Inspection in co-operation with the University of Stuttgart of Germany.
The main objectives of this Project were:
- The preliminary assessment of ambient air quality and drawing up of zones of pollution in Cyprus according to the E.U. Framework Directive 96/62/EC on ambient air quality assessment and management.
- The optimization of the ambient air quality monitoring network in order to comply with the relevant directives of the E.U. including the reporting of the European Commission.
- The supply of the necessary input for the formulation of air pollution management policies in Cyprus including preparation of plans on how to meet the E.U. limits and other requirements.
- The increase of public awareness on issues of urban and rural air pollution.
The air pollutants dispersion from the emission sources and their distribution in the atmosphere in time and space depends on several parameters. To reach the objectives of the project, to determine the temporal and the spatial distribution of the air pollutants and the assessment of its results, the total volume of work was broken down in 7 main tasks.
