Common Mediterranean strategy and local practical Actions for the mitigation of Port, Industries and Cities Emissions

APICE – a project financed by the European program for territorial Cooperation MED 2007/2013 (www.programmemed.eu) – intended to develop a knowledge-based approach for air pollution mitigation and sustainable development of port activities, managed by spatial planning policies at local level, which includes the territory around the ports.

The inter-comparison of data acquired in five different Pilot Areas (Venice, Genoa, Barcelona, Marseille and Thessaloniki) will allow the validation of a common model for building intervention scenario, whose effectiveness and practicability will be tested within the project.

In the framework of the project, DRAXIS, as external consultant, was responsible for the development of strategies for the sustainable development of the port and the wider area of Thessaloniki, as well as for the implemention of activities related to the management and the dissemination of the project.

The project was implemented for the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki - Research Committee
