LIFE MONZA (Methodologies fOr Noise low emission Zones introduction And management) is a project co-financed by the European Community through the LIFE 2015 financial program, whose main objective is to develop and test a methodology, applicable in different contexts, for the identification and the management of the Noise Low Emission Zone, an urban area subjected to traffic restrictions. The impacts and benefits concerning noise pollution will be analyzed and tested in the pilot area of the Municipality of Monza, partner of the project together with the University of Florence and Vie en.ro.se. Engineering, with the coordination of ISPRA.
Further objectives of the project concern the analysis of the effects, due to the introduction of the Noise Low Emission Zone, on air quality and on the well-being of people, the identification of the type of interventions capable of inducing beneficial and synergistic effects, such as those concerning the planning of traffic flows and the adoption of low noise floors, and the active involvement of the population in the definition of a more sustainable lifestyle.
The project started on 1 September 2016 and it will end on 30 June 2020.
