Action A5: Assess the impact of ecosystems/vegetation on health and ecosystem risks due to their effect on air pollution in the partner municipalities


Responsible: Universidad Politecnica de Madrid - UPM

This action will quantify the effect of vegetation ecosystem on health and vegetation ecosystem itself.

Expected results

High resolution maps of relevant indexes for health and vegetation ecosystem risk assessments in terms of concentration changes (limit values, target values and critical levels) for each city (Bologna, Milan and Madrid) and scenario.

High resolution maps of relevant indexes for health and vegetation ecosystem risk assessments (exceedances, mortality, O3 fluxes, etc) for each city and scenario.

Assessment report on the impact of urban ecosystems/vegetation on health and ecosystem risks due to their effect on air pollution for the selected reference cities.

Guidelines for estimating impact of urban ecosystems/vegetation on health and ecosystem risks due to their effect on air pollution.
