Third edition of the Air Quality News Procurement Guide

Welcome to the third edition of the Air Quality News Procurement Guide, where we aim to provide local authorities with effective tools to address the multiple issues inherent in tackling air pollution.

Whether it is facilitating cleaner transport, installing air monitoring systems or involving the public in meaningful dialogue there are multiple mechanisms to fit different approaches and this guide always tries to present a broad array of them.

A report from property investment trust LandSec, speculated that in a worst-case scenario, cities could become unliveable in as little as ten years, so we look at routes to best-case scenario, through smart city innovation and urban planning.

In her quest to learn more about ‘smart cities’ Georgie Hughes headed to Scotland where the 8th City Programme has spawned a variety of intriguing initiatives, such as Dundee’s the Mobility Innovation Living Laboratory. She also speaks to Peter Griffiths, Global Urban Futures Expert at BABLE who discusses using technology to understand how a city works.

By 2050, 70% of the World will live in a city so Martin Gutteridge-Hewitt explores the benefits of green infrastructure, from its aesthetic benefit to the biological impact of different species of flora.

And thanks to our guest writer Stephen Cirell who considers how councils who once viewed solar farms as an income stream are now promoting them for the carbon benefits.
