Air Policy SIG


One of the objectives of the society is to protect the environment through advancement of knowledge and practical experience in air quality science and management. Providing scientifically robust inputs for air policy development, and effectively communicating science-based air quality information to communities and decision makers represent important actions addressing this objective. The Society does not currently have an established procedure, nor designated responsibilities for carrying out these actions.


The Air Policy SIG will be to bring together CASANZ members with an interest in advancing air policy development and contributing to responsible air quality related risk communication for the purpose of: 

  • Exchanging ideas, and informing members of new air policy related developments and air quality issues of significant public concern
  • Coordinating and communicating science-based inputs for air policy, legislative and regulatory development processes
  • Collating and communicating science-based information to communities and decision makers on pressing air quality related issues, including official inquiries

In preparing inputs the Air Policy SIG will draw on the technical knowledge held by the Society’s existing SIGs, whilst extending the Society’s focus and contribution within the field of air policy and air quality risk communication.
