Description: "As South Asia becomes more and more industrialized, populations are moving from an agrarian lifestyle to one that is increasingly urbanized. Increased industrialization and the growth of urban areas are generally linked to deterioration in air quality. Before appropriate approaches to air quality management to ensure the wellbeing of people living in urban areas can begin, a system for monitoring ambient air quality is needed. This publication provides an introduction and overview of a method for rapid assessment of urban air quality which can be used in cities in South Asia and elsewhere that have less access to highly developed monitoring systems and a detailed technical report of its application in Kathmandu."
