CTG Releases Findings on the Benefits of Air Quality Information


CTG has released findings from a study assessing the potential socio-economic and financial benefits of enhanced air quality data. The study was sponsored by NASA Applied Sciences and conducted through a partnership with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), CTG, and Sonoma Technology (STI). 


The study provides better understanding of the benefits provided by current air quality data and data products from EPA's AirNow program and how enhancing AirNow with NASA satellite data might contribute to different or greater benefits in the future.

As part of the study, CTG conducted case studies in three locations (Denver, Colorado; Atlanta, Georgia; and Kansas City, Missouri) to assess the public value or community-level benefits.





In January 2014, CTG, as part of the Open Government Alliance (OGA), led the Federal Government of Nigeria's first ever Open Data Stakeholder Engagement Forum and Workshop. 

This historic event brought together government leaders, civil society advocates, industry experts, and media professionals, to create awareness, foster discussion, and provide the opportunity to identify both short and long term goals for Nigeria's Open Data Initiative.
