Abu Dhabi Air Quality Monitoring Network Expands

Air pollution causes the death of around 1 million people each year around the world. Middle East cities have particularly high values of air pollution due to the dusty desert environment of the region. The Environment Agency Abu Dhabi has embarked on an effort to expand its air quality monitoring network by doubling the number of monitoring stations. This will give city planners access to information on air quality on different development scenarios, allowing them to make more informed decisions when it comes to planning future projects.
