PASODOBLE (Promote Air Quality Services integrating Observations – Development Of Basic Localised Information for Europe)

Keeping citizens in the know on local air quality

Polluted air has known negative impacts on the human health. In Europe, particles in the air are estimated to reduce the lifetime of the average citizen by eight months.

Therefore air quality is a crucial environmental factor. Assessing and monitoring air pollution is fundamental to increase our welfare. PASODOBLE aims at improving capabilities in air quality information in Europe’s regions and cities.

Timely and adequate information on air pollution levels can save lives. In the context of Europe’s GMES monitoring system for environment and security, PASODOBLE seeks to provide information on local air quality directly to the public, people at risk and the health care community.
