4, 5 and 6 March 2013, the Polibienestar Institute of the University of Valencia (Spain) and the CVI (Instituto Valenciano of the isle) organized a three-day meeting GOUV'AIRNANCE project. The first day was an opportunity to share in a public meeting, bringing together more competent persons for air quality, from Valencia, Marseille (France), Tripoli (Lebanon) and Aqaba (Jordan).
The next two days were spent at the meeting of the Steering Committee of GOUV'AIRNANCE project and helped to present the progress of the project in the areas concerned.Learn more

The project in a nutshell
Air pollution and environmental health consequences especially direct. In 1997, the World Health Organization estimated that air pollution was 400,000 deaths worldwide each year. There is thus an increase in all respiratory diseases. Air pollution is also an aggravating factor on which global warming the greatest scientific consensus today that the cause is emissions of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. The development of photochemical processes, the main indicator is the ozone is particularly important in the Mediterranean, particularly in connection with the generous sunshine.
GOUV'AIRNANCE aims to reduce urban air pollution in the Mediterranean by the implementation of measures and means of an integrated territorial governance of air quality in four Mediterranean cities: Tripoli (Lebanon), Aqaba (Jordan ), Valencia (Spain) and Marseille (France). The project's purpose is the best protection of populations, especially the most sensitive (children, elderly, respiratory deficient).
GOUV'AIRNANCE and offers an open-plan approach, multilevel and participatory management of air quality. The first project aims to reduce the health impact of air pollution in these cities, thanks to a better understanding of the air quality in each territory and population information, including sensitive populations. The project also proposes to promote the integration of measures to reduce emissions as a key dimension of sustainable urban planning documents.
