A working meeting was held in the Lviv region to establish air pollution monitoring stations in the region and amend the State Monitoring Program in the field of air protection for the period of 2021-2025.

Participants shared their experience and suggested ways to improve existing air monitoring methods.

They also presented materials on the basis of which the Monitoring Program will be amended. New requirements and proposals for the accuracy of measurements at observation points have been taken into account. They will allow for a detailed analysis of air pollution.
