Air Pollution Monitoring in Rohini Urban Municipality

PNMF installed air quality sensors and collected primary data on pollution counts from Province number 5. The high pollution count was established in one spatial point in Rohini Urban Municipality, Rupandehi district, Province 5 during December 2018, with the use of air quality sensor called Purple Air (outdoor air pollution tracking device). PNMF will be expanding data collection from wider spatial areas across the urban landscape of Rohini Urban Municipality. The collected data will be made available soon to the public viewing through dashboard and e-portal. Air quality is a complex and multidimensional challenge so we need joint efforts to be able to create awareness, develop extensive database, monitoring and evaluation, and policy interventions according to the needs of the communities.
