Improving management and supporting guidelines in air quality in metropolitan cities (Athens, Bangkok and Bristol)
Funding body: Asia Urbs - EuropeAid.
Dates: 2002 - 2004.
This project reviewed and assessed the air quality in the three metropolitan cities in order to identify the extent of air pollution problems and the subsequent actions that needed to be taken.
As a result, partners produced best practice guidance notes and
an action plan for improving both air quality and air quality
management. Training and study visits were organised for local
authority officials as a means of strengthening the Environmental
Quality Management and Control Division of Bangkok Metropolitan
Administration, who are gradually taking on increasing Air Quality
Management responsibilities from the national Government's
Pollution Control Department.
