The Media Awareness and Justice Initiative (MAJI) under the Soot Mapping project in Port Harcourt will be supported by the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) to expand the DACATAB online portal to cover air quality monitoring, mapping and analysis for the development of sustainable community networks, effective stakeholder interactions and data oriented strategic interventions. This project will also be supported by the Open Culture Fund (OCF) to also create a bridge with their Civc Sense Project. OCF will provide technical and equipment support for the Soot mapping project.

Donated LASS air-quality sensors from OCF will be deployed under the project

The Sootmap Project, which is supported by the Association for Progressive Communication (APC) is targeted at creating a sustainable community network through the use of citizen science methodologies and FLOSS technology for the reduction of air pollution in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. OCF will provide airboxes to this project and provide training to MAJI to help them with installation. These air boxes will be installed in different communities across the Niger Delta region and will help produce pm2.5 data in a region seriously lacking available data.

AirNote air-quality monitors will be deployed under the Soot Mapping Project
