Govt Launches Real-Time Air Quality Index

Industry: Climate

The government has introduced a real-time air quality index (AQI) with 16 Continuous Air Quality Monitoring Systems (CAMS) across Bangladesh. The initiative aims to inform the public about the health impact of air pollution and facilitate measures to control it. The CAMS will continuously track pollutants like PM10, PM2.5, ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide, calculating the AQI. The AQI, categorized from good to hazardous, will be available on the Department of Environment’s website, aiding public awareness and pollution control efforts.
