Minimise local air pollution from FIFA World Cup 2022™ stadiums, training sites, overlay infrastructure and transport services, promoting access to cleaner technologies in Qatar
Air pollution is one of Qatar’s main environmental challenges due to the country’s desert environment and wind, which generate dust particles, as well as vehicle exhausts and industry emissions from across the region. Qatar’s government is committed to reducing air pollutant concentrations to comply with its strict Qatari Air Quality standards by 2022. Efforts by the government and academia to improve air quality monitoring and understanding of pollution sources and their consequences are ongoing.
Through the construction of tournament sites and related infrastructure, as well as the use of a significant number of vehicles and generators for FIFA World Cup 2022™ sites and events, the FIFA World Cup 2022™ will have an impact on dust generation as well as exhaust air emissions.
