MetadataShow full item record
NILU experts have been asked by the World Bank to assess and support the Air Quality Assessment work ongoing in Dhaka. This work was undertaken through two Missions to Dhaka in January and March 2006. A number of tasks were given in the scope of work. This report summarises the findings and conclusions based on 12 tasks identified from the ToR. The NILU expert team has in several occasions pointed to the needs of training. Instruments and manuals had been provided, but the lack of training has lead to break down and malfunctions, especially concerning gas monitors. Knowledge and methods for Air Quality Assessment, such as emission inventories and models were non-existing. This report also summarises some of the tasks and actions that will have to be taken to bring AQMP in Dhaka to a level when air quality management could be undertaken
