ABOUT THE 3RD ANNUAL AIR QUALITY AND NOISE CONTROL
With dust, transport and industrial emissions being major contributors to air pollution, GCC governments are putting more efforts and launching new initiatives to increase air quality standards as health concerns rise.
The UAE is leading the way by having launched the Emirates Air Quality Network. Creating a GCC-wide air quality network has been widely discussed at the 2nd Annual Air Quality and Noise Control summit.
Indoor air management is also a key priority in air quality improvement strategy. Research and studies of possible health issues associated with the indoor air quality prompt the Gulf region stakeholders to pay closer attention to indoor environment standards.
Noise pollution management gains more prominence as governments introduce penalties and awareness rises.
The 3rd Annual Air Quality and Noise Control GCC summit will continue to look into these three major environmental concerns, as more research being done, new projects launched and the regulations are put in place. Government officers, health and medical practitioners, researchers, industry executives and international authorities will gather for the third time to discuss, share and collaborate on the issues of ambient and indoor air quality and noise management.
