Urgent Call for Reassessment of Akamas Development Plans

The Cyprus Architects’ Association urgently calls for a reevaluation of construction projects in Akamas, advocating for sustainable development that preserves the area’s ecology. They recommend a unified, transparent plan involving experts to guide development while protecting the region’s natural biodiversity and preventing environmental impacts. The association’s concerns are supported by former scientific advisor Klitos Papastylianou, who warns of dire consequences if action is not taken to address the potential soil erosion and irreversible degradation of habitats. The construction activities in Akamas have been temporarily suspended to address these pressing issues.
