Policy Modelling

The Measurement and Modelling working group focuses on developing and implementing protocols for measurement of urban environmental features and exposures, with a focus on air quality, noise, transportation mode and safety, and housing. In addition, the group works on acquiring data for modelling and on applying models to characterize baseline status of environmental exposures and the impacts of specific policy scenarios, to cities in the Pathways project. Using our collective experiences in London and Vancouver, work to date has largely focused on development of methods for air pollution, noise and transportation characterization in Accra which can then be applied in other Pathways cities where existing data are lacking.
