The project aims to:

  1. use a citizen science approach to assess the level and magnitude of the air pollution (PM2.5 and PM10) in low income neighbourhoods in Addis Ababa and Nairobi;
  2. co-create with affected communities, and other stakeholders, solutions for addressing the challenge of indoor air pollution from energy sources; and
  3. promote policy awareness and actions on the nexus of human health and wellbeing, air pollution, and energy in urban areas.

The project is implemented in partnership with University of Nairobi – Institute of Development Studies, Muungano Wa Wanavijiji, African Population Health Research Centre, and Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre (Ethiopia). It is funded by the International Council for Science (ICSU) in partnership with the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC).
