Fifth Regional Training Programme

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) is crucial in ensuring the quality of the monitoring programme and has been identified as a priority area. As a part of the capacity building in QA/QC, fifth regional training on monitoring trans-boundary air pollution was held at United Nation Environment Program Regional Resource Centre for Asia and Pacific, Pathumthani, Thailand from 27 to 30 March, 2007. In this program, thirteen participants from six different countries were trained in the correct procedures for lab analysis and QA/QC checks and also reviewed the data collected from the Malé sites.
