SUPPORTED
Kathmandu Air Quality Watch

by Prabin Raj Shakya

An open-access integrated platform for real-time air pollution information, and visualization as well as self-reporting of health effects

Several studies have shown that Kathmandu’s air is very polluted, particularly in the dry winter months and that the level of pollution is increasing. The ambient air pollution of the Kathmandu has reached alarming level. People’s health is sure to be deteriorated as its consequence if proper precaution is not adopted. When we searched we did not find any kind of documentation or communication initiatives regarding the issue. Hence we strongly felt a need to develop the mechanism through build an open-access integrated platform for near real-time air pollution information, and visualization, as well as self-reporting of health symptoms, experienced.

Benefits:
1. The air quality could be monitored regularly
2. The self-reported of health effects due to ambient air quality could be visualized geo-spatially
3. The air pollution-related advice and precaution measures will be delivered to the people
4. Support ministry to prioritize the resource allocation to mitigate the causes and health
