Monitoring and evaluating the health risks from air pollution in buildings including emissions from building materials and consumer products

The effective implementation of the Regional Priority Goal 3 of the WHO/EU Ministerial Declaration 2010 on Environment and Health aims to prevent disease through improved outdoor and indoor air quality.

The training course, co-organised by JRC/IHCP and WHO-Europe, is aimed as a capacity building activity targeting the countries involved in the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) and other EU Accession and Candidate countries and aims at providing hands on training on:

  • state-of-the-art techniques, standards and protocols to measure and monitor a wide array of health relevant air pollutants and tools for evaluating the associated health effects in buildings as well as quality control/assurance to enhance data comparability across regions/ countries;
  • methodologies to test emissions from construction materials and consumer products and evaluate the associated health risks.
