Second Clean Air Engineering for Cities (CArE-Cities) workshop
A collaborative effort towards ‘clean air for all.’
The American University in Cairo
This event is invitation only. Registration closes at midnight on Monday 17 June 2019.
Air pollution causes seven million premature deaths worldwide, disproportionately affecting poor and vulnerable communities and exacerbating inequalities among the masses in official development assistance (ODA) countries.This workshop will provide an international platform to bring cleaner air to cities by building a knowledge exchange platform, involving 11 Development Assistance Committee (DAC) listed countries.
With a collaborative vision of ‘clean air for all’, we aim to establish a multidisciplinary team for understanding emissions, penetrating low-cost pollution monitoring technology and exposure reduction strategies in selected ODA cities.
