In the past decade, the Indian government has launched action plans to tackle rising levels of air pollution. Real-time air quality and emissions monitoring networks across the country are continuously expanding. Pollution Control Boards (PCB) have established dedicated data acquisition and handling centers to tackle large volumes of incoming pollution data. However, these efforts are also dotted with considerable challenges, especially when it comes to enforcement of pollution norms.
The social impacts of poor air quality are significant. Research suggests that prolonged exposure to high levels of PM 2.5 may result in shortening the average Indian’s lifespan by around 4 years (https://aqli.epic.uchicago.edu). Determining solutions requires combined efforts from regulators, policymakers, academicians, industry professionals, NGOs and the public. Bringing together experts working in pollution control, the conference aims to facilitate implementation of regulatory innovations.
