Abstract: Local authorities and national governments use air quality plans in order to identify measures to reduce the harmful effects of air pollution in compliance with the objectives for air quality. This paper illustrates the practical application of the integrated assessment tool RIAT+ in the definition of Emilia Romagna air quality plan (PAIR2020). Emilia Romagna was the first case study used during LIFE+OPERA project to design and implement RIAT+ tool answering regional requirements in air quality planning. The tool was designed to help regional decision makers to select optimal air pollution reduction policies that will improve the air quality at minimum cost and to achieve European Union air quality standard. Finally, the emission air quality plan scenario compared with base case emission scenarios, as well as PM10 concentration for different emission scenarios will be shown.
