enforcement of the air quality legislation, Action plan to
improve administrative capacities for air quality, are
developed and approved,
The assessment should cover all the aspects
(organizational structure, communication, staff, training
needs, equipment, etc.) to allow efficient and effective
implementation and enforcement of the law.
For the purpose of this analysis the main central level
institutions are Ministry of environment and physical
planning (Environmental          Information     Centre),
Environmental Inspectorate, Hydro-meteorological
Administration, Health Institute.
Local level institutions are the following six
municipalities: Municipality of Gostivar, Berovo,
Kavadarci, Aerodrom, Karpos and Bitola.

4. Prioritized actions of the action plan to improve
administrative capacities for air quality are applied.

5. Training action plan developed and adopted and
prioritized training measures implemented. Expected
number of trained staff from central and local
authorities, industries and NGOs is 55. The most
priority areas for training to be done within the frame of
the project include:
o Function of a dispersion model for central and local
     authorities (Hydro-meteorological administration,
     State health protection institute,
o Modern meteorological observation techniques and
     maintenance (Hydro-meteorological administration)



                                                                                                 3
o   QA/QC procedures for air quality measurements
    (MEPP)
o   Usage of National Environmental Information
    System in reference to air quality (MEPP, Hydro-
    meteorological    administration, State health
    protection institute, Municipality of Gostivar,
    Berovo, Kavadarci, Aerodrom, Karpos and Bitola,
    Large Combustion Plants )
o   Preparation on program for reduction and
    improvement of air quality and action plan for
    protection of air quality for (Municipality of
    Gostivar, Berovo, Kavadarci, Aerodrom, Karpos
    and Bitola )

6. Effective air quality assessment and forecasting
capabilities and data management on central and local
level

7. Development and adoption of methods and
procedures for air quality assessment, data processing
methods and datasets respecting QA/QC principles;

8. Review of detailed emission inventory and emission
data and preparation of air quality assessment for 2009
and revision of the list of zones and agglomerations;

9. Analysis of the current pilot local-scale dispersion
model. Preparation and approval of regional-scale
dispersion model, installation and test of the model in
pilot hot spots, simulations and put in operation. The
pilot hot spots are foreseen to be at Eastern and
Western zones and Skopje region agglomeration.

10. Established efficient National environmental
information system concerning air quality for the
