The report of the study on ‘Status of Air Pollution in Peshawar’ was formally launched here on Wednesday.

The report was produced by the Peshawar Clean Air Alliance (PCAA), a civil society-led network of stakeholders sharing a common vision of improving Peshawar’s air quality in collaboration with NGO Sustainable Energy and Economic Development.

“The Air Quality Life Index estimates that citizens of Peshawar can add up to 2.3 years to years to their life expectancy if PM2.5 levels meet the WHO guidelines,” it said.
