New Delhi-based research body Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) monitors air pollution exposure levels in Kolkata

Will release its findings on January 30, 2016

Dear Friend, 

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), the New Delhi-based research and advocacy organization headed by Sunita Narain, would like to invite you to the release of its air pollution monitoring study on Kolkata. This week, CSE researchers are monitoring air quality in different parts of Kolkata, an analysis of which will be presented before the media and other stakeholders, at a briefing workshop titled ‘Kolkata City Dialogue on air quality and transportation challenges: An agenda for action’. 

CSE has been at the forefront of much of India’s nation-wide action against air pollution. Recently, it had lent its support to the odd-even number car restraint measure put into effect in New Delhi to control the city’s burgeoning air pollution levels.

Kolkata has already planned and implemented a variety of steps towards reducing air pollution and is on its way to evolving the next generation policy measures. This monitoring study in the city and the briefing workshop that follows are expected to help to capture the learning in our cities and help evolve strategies for future policy action.
