Naimul is a researcher dedicated to finding solutions posed by deteriorating air quality and environmental degradation in Dhaka city. What started as academic research has since evolved into a broader mission that is focused on exploring ways to improve air quality and create a positive impact.

The influx of Rohingya refugees has had a significant impact on the environment in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The project, titled ‘Indoor and Outdoor Air Quality Due to Rohingya Influx, Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh’ aimed at assessing the air quality in various Rohingya campsites. Both indoor and outdoor air sampling was conducted using six air quality monitoring sensors. Samples were collected from ten different campsites and were analyzed for particulate matter (PM) as well as various gases, including CO2, CO, NO2, SO2, O3, and TVOC. The findings from this study can provide valuable insights.

Naimul aims to establish a continuous air quality monitoring network in schools and hospitals across Dhaka city. This initiative aims to monitor air quality in these environments to ensure the health and well-being of students, staff, and patients. The data from this network can be used for the development and implementation of relevant policies and guidelines that prioritize the health and safety of the individuals.

Country Profile (Bangladesh): Opportunity Score 8.4 (Medium-High): Annual average PM2.5 levels are more than 14.5 times the WHO guideline. There is no public PM2.5 data produced by the government, but there is a national ambient air quality standard for PM2.5.
