Abstract

This webinar is organized by Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei in collaboration with the I and II Level Specialising Master “Design for Development. Architecture, Urban Planning and Heritage in the Global South” Politecnico di Milano – DAStU/Poliedra. The webinar will discuss the paper “Locally Developed Low Cost Particulate Matter Sensors for Modeling PM2.5 in Uganda” by Professor Eric S. Coker, University of Florida. Conventional air pollution monitoring networks suffer from spatial sparsity, which limits the characterization of spatial heterogeneity and exposure estimation of urban ambient air pollutant levels. Moreover, lower-income countries in sub-Saharan Africa lack virtually any air pollution monitoring due the high-end costs associated with procuring and maintaining instruments as well as a general lack of public investment in environmental monitoring programs. Locally derived low cost air quality sensor networks in sub-Saharan Africa can address several of these challenges; including overcoming costing barriers, spurring public investment in environmental monitoring, and utilization of sensors tailored to the region’s socioeconomic and environmental context.

The webinar will be held in English and is part of the “Research and Policy Webinars on African Development: Urbanisation and Sustainability” series.
