Mauritius 'to begin air quality monitoring'

Apr 09 2009

The government of Mauritius has contacted a French firm for assistance as it begins efforts to develop an air quality monitoring system on the island, it has been reported.

Lormus Bundhoo, the environment minister for Mauritius, made the announcement this week and revealed that the government has been working with international company LimAir to develop technology and techniques.

The minister was speaking at an air quality monitoring workshop in the island's capital city Port Louis and said that the measures are being taken with the welfare of the ecosystem and the health of the populace in mind, informs the African Press Agency.

Cutting-edge equipment will be adopted in the quest for better air quality and will be installed at various points around the island, particularly close to places of industrial activity.

In neighbouring Asia, one country experiencing problems with air quality is Vietnam, according to research by ORC Worldwide. It found that Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are two of the worst places to live and work in the world in terms of pollution.
