UNEP and GRID-Arendal are entering into this SSFA with the overall objective of co-operating on providing assistance with the deployment of UNEP Air Quality monitoring units in Nairobi as proof-of-concept for Member States who wish to have low-cost air quality monitoring networks. 


This capability is needed by countries in order to build up a first mapping/assessment of pollutants for eventual decision making and emissions and health-related policy actions. Grid-Arendal is providing financial management services for this project; the technical work will be carried out by consultants from Alphasense, a UK-based technology company. An additional component of this agreement is to provide support to GEO related activities including extra support for the UNEP IEA Guidelines project.
