The APINA and Malé Declaration progamme on Impacts of Air Pollution on Corrosion of Man Made Materials had a workshop on capacity building for the development of dose-response functions, assessment of stock of materials at risk from corrosion as well as evaluation of corrosion trend, from 11th to 13th February, 2008 in Livingstone, Zambia.

Eighteen participants including two resource persons from Corrosion and Metals Research Institute (KiMab), Sweden were present in the workshop. The major objectives of this workshop were to transfer knowledge on how to perform statistical evaluations and stock at risk studies, follow-up on first workshop on sample evaluation, present results from the rapid urban assessment study performed in Kathmandu, Nepal, initiate a move in future development of dose-response functions for the investigated regions, RAPIDC/Corrosion and CORNET.
