Capacity Development Program on Air Quality Management and Emission Reduction of PM2.5 for Member Countries of ASEAN Haze Agreement and Malé Declaration
19-23 September 2022
AIT Conference Center, Thailand
Module 1: Air Quality Monitoring
This module will cover details of air quality monitoring and analysis including monitoring methods, instruments, calibrations, etc. This module will also cover air quality monitoring by satellites, low-cost sensors, and a Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS).
Module 2: Emission Inventory
This module will cover the development of inventories of air pollutants through “bottom-up and top-down” approaches and an Emission Inventory Tool will be introduced for the compilation of emissions of air pollutants.
Module 3: Air Quality Modeling
In this module details of air quality modeling will be introduced including Chemical Transport Models (CTMs), source apportionment models, and secondary pollutants formation models. The use and applications of models in air quality management will be discussed.
Module 4: Impact Assessment
This module will cover the concept of impact assessment of air pollution on human health and the environment. The models or tools used for impact assessment of air pollution on health and the environment will be discussed and how these tools or models can be used in air quality management including formulations of effective emission reduction policies. The co-benefits of air pollution reduction will be presented in this module.
Module 5: Policy measures and mitigation for air pollution
This module will cover air pollution emission reduction policies, action plans incorporating mitigation scenarios, strengthening emissions standards, etc. The 25 science-based solutions for emission reduction of air pollutants will be presented in this module.
