Integrated Climate forcing and Air pollution Reduction in Urban Systems (ICARUS)

Description:

ICARUS (Integrated Climate forcing and Air pollution Reduction in Urban Systems) was a European research and innovation project active from May 2016 to October 2020. The project applied integrated tools and strategies for urban impact assessment in support of air quality and climate change governance in EU Member States leading to the design and implementation of appropriate abatement strategies to improve the air quality and reduce the carbon footprint in European cities. 

Results of the policy analyses allowed researcher to determine the most sustainable GHG mitigation and air quality (AQ) improvement strategies. The latter have been proposed to the authorities competent for atmospheric pollution and climate protection management as guidance for decision-making that would lead towards maximizing the net public health and wellbeing benefits while taking into consideration the costs associated with air pollution and climate change in the EU.

A critical review on the influence of socioeconomic status in relation to exposure to air contaminants and disease causation as well as the Report on the methodology for estimating health effects of individuals or population groups and health impact results in the ICARUS participating cities have been published through deliverable form to disseminate the results of the project.
