A scheme to control dust storms in Tehran Province has received the green light from the Workgroup to Reduce Tehran's Air Pollution with three projects given top priority. 
The government passed a law in July 2017 to combat the scourge of dust storms across the country, based on which offices were to be set up in each province to oversee short- and long-term plans for the purpose and coordinate the executive bodies involved.
Tehran's headquarters was formed within the framework of Workgroup to Reduce Tehran's Air Pollution. "It, then, held sessions with relevant organizations during which 50 projects were devised and assigned to 15 executive organizations," Mehrdad Katal-Mohseni, technical deputy at Tehran's office of the Department of Environment, told ISNA.
