Communities Engaged to Improve Air Quality and Health

In Bahia, Brazil in the shadow of the largest petrochemical complex in the southern hemisphere sits the community of Leandrinho.  Its residents are actively engaged in an air quality monitoring campaign that aims to quantify the impact of the local industry on the local environmental and the health of residents.  This presentation will discuss health impacts faced by these residents, the results from the monitoring campaign in comparison to Brazilian and international air quality standards and the broader impact of the petrochemical industry on the environmental health of communities in Bahia, Brazil.
