air quality

Date: December 1 - 10, 2021

Note: Participation is through invite-only

CSE along with SEPA, is organizing a ten-day online training program on developing an Action plan to control air pollution. As Sweden has achieved good results in combating air pollution in their cities, CSE would be delighted to have experts from SEPA in this training program who can share their knowledge and expertise with the participants. In its endeavour to help improve air quality, CSE feels the necessity to disseminate knowledge to the relevant stakeholders and thus plans to organize an online course on the subject.  As the pollution control board officers are the major stakeholders in this field, this program is designed to capacitate the regulators with an understanding of how a pollution abatement plan can be prepared for an area. The aim is to develop a workforce that will conduct such studies and help strengthen the policy implementation.

Program Outcome: 

To develop understanding on-

  • Need for industrial air quality management
  • Understanding of Meteorology
  • Criteria for developing monitoring network
  • Methodology for collecting ambient air quality data in Sweden
  • Statutory norms governing ambient air quality in Sweden
  • Emission inventory and pollution load assessment
  • Use of air quality modeling
  • Methodology for preparing action plans
  • Methodology for working with action plans in Sweden
  • Action plan case studies from Sweden – measures, and stakeholders
  • Case study of Jaipur

Mode of training: This training program is a self-paced course. The online training program will have pre-recorded lectures from experts, live question and answer sessions, presentations, videos, and reading material. The recorded lecture can be assessed by participants anytime. The training program will be followed by a webinar which will discuss how the learnings from the training program are implemented or planned to be implemented by the respective PCB. Since Swedish experts will be part of the webinar, their expertise will provide insights on how they have ensured effective implementation of their action plans and policies.
