Liquid Telecom Partners with Code for Africa (CfA) to map deadly air pollution in Kenya

Following a warning that air pollution kills more than 20 000 Kenyans each year, a pilot exercise in Nairobi,  with 60 air sensors controlled by the CfA, a nonprofit technology network, confirmed high pollution in the city. As a solution, Liquid Telecom has partnered with CfA to install air quality sensors at 3000 sites in Kenya.

The sensors, which will be mounted on Liquid Telecom’s towers and powered by the company’s Internet of Things (IoT) Low Power Wide Area Network, will provide information on the levels of airborne pollutants every 2.5 minutes.
