Description of city challenge
Stara Zagora is a city in Bulgaria, a nationally important economic centre. Located in Southern Bulgaria, it is the administrative capital of the homonymous Stara Zagora Province. The city is the fifth largest in Bulgaria and has a population of 213,444 inhabitants.
Economically the strongest sectors are the processing industry, trade and energy and construction. The city and its surroundings enjoy extremely well developed energy and transport infrastructure. Near Stara Zagora operates The Maritsa Iztok Complex is the largest energy complex in South Eastern Europe. It consists of three lignite-fired thermal power stations.
Environment: The city and its region are favoured by moderate climate, diverse and fertile soil which is well preserved and relatively good water potentials. Soil and climatic conditions are utilized to achieve a leading position in the field of crop production, horticulture, industrial crops, horticulture, apiculture. Arable lands occupy over 56% of the territory, with 43% average for the country.
The challenge: And yet, paradoxically Stara Zagora is the most significant source of air pollution in the country. According to the World Health organization, the index for air pollution of Stara Zagora is ranked as high (70.00). The major causes are the industry and more precisely the Maritsa Iztok Power plant complex, and the domestic heating with solid fuels, the heavy traffic and adverse weather conditions. Though vigorous measures are taken, the levels of air pollution are still high. The city also faces challenges with water utilization and surface water treatment (eater pollution caused by industry) and waste management.

The iniciative is supported by Zagorka SA (part of Heineken company), STARA ZAGORA REGIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AGENCY and many local partners.
