Monitoring the pollutants from the sources (stable and moving) and develop the monitoring program and improving the air quality.

A shortcut brief about the project

- It is one of the development projects for air quality control systems in the State of Kuwait.
- Through the project, a national emission factor will be developed to determine the contribution of all emission sources to the rates of pollutants in the outdoor air.
- Follow up on the sources of emissions and ensure that the permissible limits for the emission of pollutants into the outdoor air are not exceeded..
- Expanding the scope of the air quality monitoring and monitoring network in a phased manner from 2020 to 2035 due to the state's plan to use future lands.

Project aims:

  1.  It will create a national emission factor.
  2.  Develop a strategic plan for air quality management.
  3. Creating a unified database for air quality monitoring and follow-up systems and emission sources monitoring.
  4.  Continuous monitoring of pollutants and their quantities.
  5.  Placement of pollutants to their sources.
  6.  Determine the fingerprint of pollution.

The actions of execution stage of the project :

First stage: developing the geographic database for air quality and gas emission in Kuwait City .

  1. Review the geographic databases for the air and emissions sector, develop them, and merge them into a unified database.
  2. Conducting a comprehensive survey of the State of Kuwait by collecting information, data and maps from the concerned state authorities to determine land use.
  3. Conduct a comprehensive survey to determine the different fixed and mobile pollution sources and determine emission factors for air pollutants.
  4. Emission map for air pollutants using geographical information systems.
  5. Complete the required data and enter it in the unified geographical database in the Environment Public Authority.

Second stage: Reviewing, evaluating and developing the current status of air quality monitoring and monitoring stations in the State of Kuwait.

Third stage: Determine the fingerprint of pollution and the pollutants placement of their sources.

Fourth stage: Evaluating and developing the scientific and technical capabilities and capabilities of the Air Quality Monitoring and Monitoring Department staff and employees.

Fifth stage: Characterization of the relationship between future land use projects in Kuwait and the air quality monitoring program in Kuwait.

Sixth stage: Preparing the national strategy and national action plans to improve air quality for the State of Kuwait.

Seventh stage: Assessing occupational exposure to work environment pollutants.
