Nine out of ten people breathe dirty air. Air pollution leads to early death and increased disease, while impacting our economies and reducing opportunities for our residents to thrive. The most vulnerable and marginalised communities in our cities are most at risk.

This paper aims to improve understanding of how citizen science initiatives improve understanding on the methodologies and outcomes of citizen science initiatives that are focused on sources of air pollution.

This 2021 World Air Quality Report presents an overview of the state of global air quality in 2021. The report is based on PM2.5 air quality data from 6,475 cities in 117 countries, regions and territories around the world.

he Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC), Government of India, launched the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) in 2019, with the aim to improve air-quality levels in non-attainment cities. NCAP has identified 122 non-attainment cities (cities that violate the national ambient air quality standards).

This report brings together the key insights from an air quality of analysis of 10 cities in South India: Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mysuru, Kochi, Mangalore, Visakhapatnam, Amaravati, Coimbatore and Puducherry. Observations show that PM2.5 and PM10 levels in all cities are well above the recommended World Health Organization limits.

Outdoor air pollution accounts for an estimated 4.2 million deaths worldwide, the majority of which are caused by exposure to fine particulate matter (or PM2.5) air pollution. Most of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

The Action Taken Report (ATR) of the Committee deals with the action taken by the Government on the recommendations/observations contained in Three Hundred Sixteenth Report on 'Air Pollution in Delhi and National Capital Region'. The Report was presented to Rajya Sabha and laid on the Table of Lok Sabha on the 7th August, 2018.

Increasing the transparency and accountability of urban climate governance in this way will serve as a starting point for identifying investment gaps and exploring opportunities for mobilizing new resources.

Air quality tracker initiative was started in winter of 2020 by the Urban Data Analytics Lab of Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) to understand the nature of air pollution in the cities and various regions of India and how it has been impacted by the extraordinary pandemic year of 2020 that has witnessed one of the biggest disruptions in
