Statistics

stat-4.jpgThe air quality in Cyprus is in general quite good; yet there are still episodes of high air pollution in inhabited areas each year. The government and national authorities are working hard to improve the situation.

During 2006 a complete new set of air quality management and information tools started to operate in Cyprus, accompanied by 4 new air quality monitoring stations. With the aid of these new tools and by making use of the data that were being added to the ones being made available to the past, better statistics and assessments are expected to enrich and suport air quality surveillance, management and thus improvement.

 


In the comprehensive background study done in 2002/2003 comparisons with the levels found in Cyprus was done with reported levels in rest of EU. This comparison showed that Cyprus has relative high levels of pollutants in the ambient air in the cities compared to other European cities.
