About AfriqAir

Africa qualité de l’air (AfriqAir) is a new hybrid air quality monitoring network with (as of June 2020) over 50 low-cost sensors and reference-grade monitors mainly in urban areas across 11 African countries. Research objectives include evaluation of sensor performance across the different climates in Africa, integration of ground sensor data with satellite data to expand spatial data coverage, verification of air quality models, and investigation of air pollution health effects.

This cross-continental network is a collaborative effort involving the following partners:
