Communities across the globe struggle with localized exposures to air pollutants hazardous to health. And yet, many cities have monitoring systems that are inadequate for seeing and fully understanding their unique air pollution problem. Fortunately, advancements in sensor technologies and analytics is expanding monitoring capabilities by producing hyperlocal insights that can inform tailored solutions for reducing exposures, addressing inequities, and protecting the most vulnerable populations.
In this two-part webinar series, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) share best practices for working with civil societies and subnational governments to develop and deploy monitoring systems that drive clean air solutions.
In Part 1 of the series, presenters drew case studies from a field audience to illustrate how scientifically robust air pollution and health data is being used to mobilize communities in the U.S. and India. In Part 2 of this series, we focus on use cases of practical sensor application for policy making, sharing lessons learned from past projects in cities across the globe – from the U.K. to Africa.
The webinars will conclude with a Q&A designed to capture key insights for defining barriers and opportunities around air pollution management at a global scale.
