The success of policies and measures designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as air pollution depends, inter alia, on the availability of primary data collected on the ground from which the actual situation will be perceived. However, surveys carried out previously for the heating methods in homes of Skopje citizens do not allow adequate analysis and policy-making at a micro level.

This research is the first comprehensive survey “How citizens of Skopje heat their homes?” conducted of such a large number of respondents - 5,044 households in all 17 urban and rural municipalities in Skopje valley. This sample is representative and allows analysis of data at the level of the municipality, or even settlement.

With the support of the United Nations Development Program, the survey was carried out in January 2017 by professional surveyors using tool named Placeformer. This innovative tool enables the collection of data from a large group of citizens in a short period of time and geographically marks information that can be used to design policies and measures at local and micro level (even at the level of settlements), but also on the regional and national level.

The results of the survey are summarized in several documents and maps, where for the first time the impact of various heating measures on the GHG emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O), but also on the local pollution (PM2,5, PM10, CO, SOx, NOx) and air quality have been analyzed:The results of the survey are summarized in several documents and maps, where for the first time the impact of various heating measures on the GHG emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O), but also on the local pollution (PM2,5, PM10, CO, SOx, NOx) and air quality have been analyzed:
