Cambridge Global Challenges


2017 has seen issues relating to poor air quality which continues to remain high on the public and political agendas. While there is general consensus on the benefits of reducing ambient concentrations of nitrogen dioxide, ozone and particulate matter, there are many open questions about the priorities for maximum health benefits, the changing sources of these pollutants, and the best ways to reduce exposure to the public. All these questions need to be addressed using reliable evidence.

Building on the success of this long-running annual event, and continuing the direct link with the work of Defra’s Air Quality Expert Group (AQEG), this conference will present an update on a range of relevant topics.

As in previous conferences, the presenters include internationally recognised experts, providing a broad and up-to-date survey of the measurement, regulatory and scientific issues affecting air quality.
