Hawa Dawa’s technology - a combination of compact IoT connected sensors and machine learning techniques - provides comprehensive real-time, city-wide environmental data, enabling cities to design, implement and evaluate measures to improve air quality.

Air pollution is a global environmental health issue: more than 90% of the world's population lives in areas where air quality exceeds WHO guideline limits and 7 million people die each year from pollution-related diseases. Cities in the EU are facing fines for exceeding air quality limits yet do not have access to the adequate data to help them design effective, targeted mitigation measures. Hawa Dawa's solution combines live data from its IoT sensor network with state-of-the-art machine learning calibration and modelling to generate comprehensive, highly granular maps of air quality that can be integrated with other public and private data sets (i.e. satellite, mobility etc.). These data products can be accessed at a fraction of the cost of traditional measurement stations and yet are able to provide a more complete representation of air pollution.
