Project implementation period 06/2017 – 11/2020
Air quality in excessively polluted areas is still managed at local level. At the same time, air pollution is a specific issue with its cross-boundary overrun so that it cannot be effectively managed only at the national or regional level. AIR TRITIA aimed to increase air quality management capacities of public sector bodies through the development of a unified spatial information database, introducing new management and pollution prediction tools and air quality strategies.
The common cooperation approach to air quality management at the level of functional urban areas was based on detailed mathematical modelling and verification of various types of measurements with the use of supercomputers. The project also defined options for transmitting information within different territories, defined measures for the reduction of emissions and elaborated legislative proposals for a more efficient implementation of an integrated strategy for air quality management at the territorial level.
The last output of the project is the publication Atlas of Air Quality in the Tritia Region. This book summarizes a number of pieces of information that emerged during the three-year project, which aimed to describe the causes of nowadays air quality in the region and propose how to improve it. It contains air maps of the TRITIA Region, which cover the landscape on the borderland of three countries - the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia.
