It aimed to assist policymakers in (a) effective policy and investment decision-making, (b) policy and project impacts monitoring, and (c) communicating to the public on the status of air pollution.

The outcome of the project was improved information, data sharing and technical guidance on air quality monitoring systems and interventions needed for developing Asian cities and for ADB operations, resulting from improved understanding of the current status, quality and best practices in air quality monitoring.
