AirData.kz is a non-profit open data project launched by enthusiasts from the international volunteer organization Global Shapers (an initiative of the World Economic Forum). AirData.kz has an official agreement with RSE "Kazhydromet" to provide the collected data free of charge to researchers working in the ecological domain.
Maintaining historical air pollution data is vital for tracking trends, evaluating control measures, and guiding informed decisions. This information supports public awareness, safeguards human health, and protects the environment.
Open data plays a crucial role in addressing air pollution by fostering transparency, collaboration, and accessibility. By sharing air quality data freely, we empower communities, researchers, and policymakers to tackle pollution effectively and create a healthier environment for all.
Educating people and raising awareness about air pollution is vital for creating a cleaner and healthier environment. By increasing public understanding of the causes, consequences, and solutions for air pollution, we contribute to long-lasting, positive change in air quality for everyone's benefit.
