We seek to grow our research community by collaborating on new projects that will increase the scope of our work and lead to joint publications whilst providing researchers with access to our database to support their research.
As a research initiative of Makerere University, one of Africa's highest ranking universities, AirQo continues to maintain the highest standards in data collection and analysis for publications in relevant academic outlets.
Join us on our journey to create a forum for debate and a data-driven, solutions-focused approach to air quality in Africa.
We work with key government entities at both local and national level by offering data, insights and recommendations on the state of current air quality, recent trends and policy guidance on how to manage air quality.
As global understanding of air quality and its impact on public health grows, the issue is receiving more interest from the public, media and policymakers at all levels. Without data, local decision makers are unable to identify the scale of the problem or understand the best solutions for their location and priorities.
AirQo aims to fill that gap by providing policymakers and administrators with solutions to address these very real and immediate challenges at local, and national levels.
As more is known about the challenges of air quality, businesses, the public and government are becoming more concerned about the credentials of their suppliers. Regulation is expected in the near future and it is in the interest of industries to be aware of their contribution.
This benefits producers by demonstrating their community credentials, ensuring the health of their employees and also being aware of the challenges and acting ahead of time to provide data and avoid fines and other penalties.
One way we achieve impact is by engaging different members of the public at all stages of our work.
