Abstract

There is already a lot of technical knowledge about air quality, both regarding the effects and the causes of air pollution, as well as useful measures (Urban agenda, 2017). Enhancing the transfer of scientific knowledge on air quality management is significant for policy making in order to effectively control the levels of air pollution. Decision Support Tools (DSTs) are undeniably an important mechanism for transfer of knowledge from researchers to decision makers (Liu et al, 2012). They are also a valuable opportunity to foster synergies in urban planning between different policies (air quality, energy, mobility, housing, health etc.) (Urban agenda, 2017). Policymakers and the stakeholders who influence their decisions can access and use knowledge on air quality and related areas more effectively to further policy development activities (Clean Air Asia). In air quality management, several DSTs are used: monitoring, modeling, GIS and public information. Integrated, they contribute for maintenance of air pollution in tolerable levels. Hence, this paper elaborates the importance of Decision Support Tools for transfer of knowledge, used for decision making at various levels and by various stakeholders in the process of air quality management.
