AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT IN BANGALORE,
INDIA:A PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT
The Karnataka state has taken several disconcerted regulatory and awareness measures to address the air pollution challenge in Bangalore. It is unclear if these measures can ensure cleaner air. The workings of the various departments are being reviewed in this report; policy makers and implementers were interviewed to understand the relationships between the agencies. Lack of appreciation of the problem, institutional and personnel capacity, personnel force, sustained action and a positive attitude, are a few of the impediments to better air quality.
