Development of A Cost Efficient Policy Tool for reduction of Particulate Matter in AIR


The stakeholders (beyond the project beneficiaries) that are related to and will be involved in this project are listed below (along with the reason (s) that make them target groups and thus, also eligible to be invited to participate in the project’s dialogue forum):

The Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Climate Change (previously Ministry of the Environment and Public Works) and especially the Department of Air pollution.

Municipalities and Regional Authorities in the three Urban areas including: Thessaloniki, Athens, Volos. More specifically:

1. The Coalition of 21 Local Authorities of North and East Athens, encompassing at least one third of the Athens Metropolitan area
2. The Prefecture of Magnesia, where Volos is the capital city
3. The Municipality of Thessaloniki, the second largest urban area in Greece
4. The Association of Motor Vehicles Importers – Representatives, a stakeholder group where new technology is planned to result in lower emissions, with their effects needed to be quantified.

The above have already declared their intent to follow the results of the proposed project and can be included in the Steering Committee.

Other Stakeholders that will be approached during the project, including large Industrial and Municipal Organizations, as well as independent Transport Service providers are the Metro as a means of reducing emissions and New Highway management companies like Attiki Odos (the periphery ring road in Athens) and the equivalent of these organizations in Thessaloniki.

Apart from the above, target audience of the project includes the General public. The project aims to demonstrate that it is possible to evaluate quantitatively the results of policies on specific sources and account for the progress achieved as a result of certain measures. On the other hand ineffective measures can be changed or discarded. The Policy makers can then win the support of the public in new measures and make their implementation more effective.
