JICA Helps Improve Air Quality Monitoring Systems in TehranJICA Helps Improve Air Quality Monitoring Systems in Tehran

As part of a joint effort between Japan International Cooperation Agency and Tehran Municipality to reduce air pollution, decades-old air quality monitoring systems in the capital are to be replaced with new instruments from Japan.
As a major upgrade to the air quality control infrastructure in place for at least 15 years, modern instruments have been imported from Japan with JAICA’s assistance.
The new devices will be used for analyzing the emissions released in the air, categorizing them based on the type of pollutants, and identifying their sources in the metropolis that has more people and cars one could imagine, Asr-e Khodro reported. 
Worth $300,000, the instruments are part of contributions by JICA to Tehran Municipality, as per a memorandum of understanding signed in February.
