Cyprus is centrally located in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East (EMME), a region with a population of about 400 million, affected by dust storms, dryness, heat extremes and unparalleled air pollution. The EMME has been identified as one of the few climate change “hot spots”, with adverse impacts by extreme weather events and poor air quality, which are expected to exacerbate in the coming decades. Air pollution, especially particulate matter (PM), plays a crucial role in regional climate (temperature, precipitation) and has major adverse health effects.
AQ-SERVE will combine innovative technical developments with new scientific knowledge on the characterization and prediction of air quality in order to provide the first-ever evaluation of the health impact and risk assessment of air pollution in Cyprus. Different scenarios (abatement measures) will be tested in a coupled Air Quality/Health & Risk model with the objective to define efficient mitigation measures, which can be translated to the public authorities (National Air Quality Action Plan).

EUSTO proposal originates from the real-world necessity to provide comprehensive and consolidated protection to surface transportation protection networks. In accordance to EU regulations, the responsibility for implementing protection programmes lays with the CI operator and national authorities, and ongoing efforts for the identification and designation of major European CI in the transportaion sector have been lacking progress in recent years. This proposal originates from this drawback in the implementation of the CIPS directive in the EU and aspires to make a small but vital contribution for its implementation.
