In July 2022, the Municipality of Florina carried out an awareness campaign in the area of the Municipality. These actions included informing local public bodies, municipal services, and the public about TRAP’s activities and results.

The partners from the Republic of North Macedonia have created the following promotional material as shown in the pictures: Brochures, Notebooks, Pens, Roll-up banner, and folders.
Deliverable 5.4.2 Health risk assessment
Center for Climate Change aiming to assess the burden of diseases attributable to air pollution in the regions of interest, Health Impact Assessment – the counterfactual approach has been applied, using several types of data. The estimations for the city of Bitola, shows that 6.4% of total mortality could be avoided if recommended EU Directive limit value for PM2.5 is met, but the proportion of avoidable death cases is even higher (14.4% of total death cases) if WHO AQG limit values for PM2.5 could be met which is of course a significant health benefit.
