Cyprus ranked second in EU for cleanliness of its waters.

May 25th, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on Cyprus ranked second in EU for cleanliness of its waters.

CYPRUS ranked second in an annual study carried out by the European Environment Agency when it comes to the cleanliness of its waters.

The European Commission says that 99% of the Cyprus coasts submitted to EU control – where blue flags have been assigned – have excellent quality waters.

This performance brings Cyprus to the second place in the EU, second only to Luxembourg.

According to the European Commission, more than 85% of bathing water sites monitored across Europe in 2016 met the most stringent ‘excellent` quality standards — meaning they were mostly free from pollutants harmful to human health and the environment.

In total, only five countries were rated “excellent” for 95% of their bathing waters: Luxembourg for all of its 11 swimming areas, Cyprus and Malta for 99% of their waters, Greece for 97% and Austria for 95%.

Greater Manchester Police said the blast is being treated as a terrorist incident until they know otherwise.

Earlier, European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker said: “”It was with great sadness and profound shock that I learnt of the brutal attack that struck Manchester. It breaks my heart to think that, once again, terrorism has sought to instil fear where there should be joy, to sow division where young people and families should be coming together in celebration.I would like to convey my deepest sympathies to Prime Minister May and to the British people. ”

He added: “Today we mourn with you. Tomorrow we will work side by side with you to fight back against those who seek to destroy our way of life. They underestimate ours and your resilience – these cowardly attacks will only strengthen our commitment to work together to defeat the perpetrators of such vile acts.”

The European Capital of Culture – Paphos2017 and the Cyprus Photographic Society – Paphos Section invite professionals and amateurs from Cyprus and abroad to record images of the urban environment and to convey it to the public through their own perspective and perception.

The photographs will transform an indifferent public space into an artistic reference point, promoting in this way the philosophy of an open-air museum and, by extension, the Open Air Factory of the European Capital of Culture – Paphos2017.
