Mapping for air pollution abatement in India

5 April 2006: To use the air ambient data meaningfully, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has initiated a 10-year programme in collaboration with Nagpur-based National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI). The project will be funded by the CPCB and leading oil companies. Besides locating high pollution areas, the project will undertake mapping technology, which will focus on health benefits in cleaner areas. The findings, after mapping the city, would be converted into an action plan to reduce pollution in each area.
