The purpose of this webinar is to examine how the COVID-19 pandemic affected air pollution levels during the first lockdown, and provide an understanding of how the reduction in air pollution may impact Local Air Quality Management going forward. The first part of the webinar will outline the health impacts of air quality and presents measured and modelled air quality data from 2020, showing changes in pollutant concentrations. We will then look at how these unexpected changes in air pollution are likely to impact Local Air Quality Management, including tools such as the DEFRA background concentration maps and the Emissions Factor Toolkit. We will consider other implications of the change in air quality, including for Air Quality Impact Assessments and planning applications. Finally, we will explore how Local Authorities can make the most of the reduction in air pollution caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, by using it to promote the benefits of clean air and low car usage.
