U.S. Embassy Launches Air Quality Monitor, Recognizes Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day, the U.S. Embassy in Baku will formally launch an “Air Quality Monitoring Program” (AQMP). Earth Day is a day to learn about and remember the importance of protecting health and the environment. The Embassy’s AQMP will continuously monitor and record the level of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in the air outside the Embassy and continuously convert the data collected onto the EPA-created “Air Quality Index” (AQI) scale. This information is available to the public and is intended to benefit all Baku residents, including the local health community and the Government of Azerbaijan.
