The ANIMA project coordinator, Laurent Leylekian, contributed with an article to the Open Access Government magazine about the health consequences of aviation noise. He explained how the ANIMA project assesses the impact of aviation noise from a holistic approach, which also takes into consideration non-acoustical factors, and the solutions brought forward by the project.
The ANIMA project aims at proposing Best Practices on noise management and mitigation and at offering a Noise Management Toolset to not only look at noise intensity, but to assess the impact of aviation noise on the whole chain of quality of life.
ANIMA is therefore going to develop an online Best Practices Portal, which will look at what various stakeholders can do or avoid doing to mitigate noise impact. The recommendations will be tailored to the various users and their specificities. For instance, recommendations for an experienced airport will differ in nature and category from those for a local authority in an area with nascent traffic. These recommendations, though non-prescriptive, will be based on exhaustive studies, existing regulations and real case studies.
