Methods for monitoring indoor air quality in schools: report of a meeting, Bonn, Germany, 4-5 April 2011
AbstractA WHO consultation in November 2010 selected a set of environmental health indicators for monitoring the implementation of time bound commitments to reduce health effects of environmental hazards in children that were adopted by Member States at the Fifth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in Parma (2010). New indicators addressing exposure to selected indoor air pollutants in the school environment, moulds and dampness in school buildings, and insufficient ventilation in classrooms will require new data collection in Member States. This technical meeting co-sponsored by WHO and the Joint Research Centre of European Commission defined methodological approaches for national surveys in schools, set schedule for further methodology development, pilot testing and preparation of guidelines

Role of human exposure assessment in air quality management : report on the joint workshop of the World Health Organization, the Joint Research Centre and the European Concerted Action "Urban Air, Indoor Environment and Human Exposure" Bonn, Germany 14-15 October 2002 World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (EUR/03/5039760, 2003)European air quality policy has so far focused on ambient (outdoor) air pollution. Accordingly, European countries have put major efforts into formulating and implementing abatement strategies for outdoor sources, while indoor sources may not have been adequately taken into account. Consequently, the present approaches may not be effective in reducing the health risks linked to pollution. This workshop evaluated how appropriate the current exposure assessment methods are when designing and implementing comprehensive policies and air quality ...
