Air Quality Monitoring

Monitoring stations have been set up to monitor the air quality in communities. The measurements are used to identify the main sources of pollution in the communities and to determine the improvement in air quality as the interventions are implemented. The following parameters are monitored continuously: Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5), sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), ozone (O3), temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall, pressure and relative humidity.
