Air pollution is both an environmental and social problem and is considered a common challenge for central European territories. The AWAIR project aims at improving the environmental management capacity in central Europe through the promotion and adoption of agreed measures and strategies. AWAIR answers to the lack of coordination of environmental policies between core urban areas and their surroundings.

It will define a common transnational protocol for mitigation and the management of adaptation actions in functional urban areas. Specific monitoring of the effectiveness of actions at each functional urban area are also foreseen. AWAIR also aims at promoting innovative preventive approaches by introducing new indicators (e.g. ultrafine particles, black carbon) and including air quality forecasting systems.
