Project Title

An Empirical analysis of air quality and its socio-economic impacts in the Nairobi Metropolitan area


This is a collaborative project funded by the National research foundation (NRF) Kenya. The principal investigator in the project is prof. Madara Ogot.

These two collaborative projects are the first such endeavours in Sub-Saharan Africa as they will provide a platform for the provision of continuous air quality data for the Nairobi Metropolitan area. The data will be useful to other researchers, policy makers and members of the public and will enable the government to develop policy to improve the health and welfare of Nairobi’s growing urban populations.

The main investigators in the project are:
