The Common Transnational Strategy (CTS) represents the general and shared result of the APICE project, whose title explicitly mentions, as its general aim, “Common Mediterranean strategy and local practical Actions for the mitigation of Port, Industries and Cities Emissions”.

The aim of CTS is to develop and to provide policy makers with independent tools to arbitrate conflicts between environmental targets and economic sectorial objectives with respect to coastal and marine activities of 5 Port-Cities.

On one hand, CTS is meant to support policy makers and local communities to develop their own strategies to mitigate air pollution in coastal areas. On the other, CTS is oriented to support the ongoing discussion at European level with respect to New Directives implementation on Air quality and on ICZM, integrated with the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
