The main objective of the project is to create effective international air quality management through development of joint information database, management and prediction tools and air quality strategies. Joint regional approach to this issue is the main change brought by this project through “evidence based policy” and “result based management”.

The main outputs of the project are a unified spatial database of needed information on international level, tools for efficient management of air quality (Air Quality Management System and Prediction Warning System) and a suggestion of strategies for improving air quality and reduction of emissions from various sources on the level of FUAs and regions of the TRITIA region.

Five FUAs (Ostrava, Opava, Zilina, Opole, Rybnik), and regions of 3 countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland) are involved into the project partnership and they will take active part in creation of a local (FUAs) and regional strategies (TRITIA).
