KIIT is a major partner for this project, where 4 professors and 10 project staff (including one MBA student) are working for it. The team has already published (jointly and individually 5 papers).
This workshop featured the launch of a a regional policy report, Nitrogen Pollution in South Asia: Scientific Evidence, Current Initiatives and Policy Landscape. The release of these reports marked a historic moment for South Asian cooperation to develop an evidence-based policy approach to tackle nitrogen pollution.
