The air pollution has become a global public health issue and is identified as one of the major environmental health hazards. Since the introduction of Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981, various pollution control programs have been focusing on controlling air pollution in India; however, more efforts are needed to tackle the rising levels of air pollution in many cities of our country. Many of our cities are declared by WHO as one of the most air polluting cities of the world. If we do not act now, it will be too late and the lives of the hundreds of thousands of citizens will be in great danger.

To address this matter and draw the methodology to mitigate air pollution in industrial and urban areas, GPCB, NEERI, Nagpur and CEE, Ahmedabad are jointly organizing a one day workshop on "Gujarat: Air Quality Management Workshop on for Industrial and Urban areas"   as per the MoU signed between them. Eminent and highly proficient experts from DoEF-GOG, CPCB, NEERI, IIT, GPCB, CEE and AMC are going to address key aspects of air pollution abatement technologies to the participants. This can act as a role model to other cities in the country.

The technical sessions would address topics like;
