The Japanese Government has gifted Georgia three automatic air measuring stations worth $1.2 million dollars, that will be installed in capital Tbilisi and continuously measure air pollution. 

Head of Georgia’s National Agency of Environment Tamar Bagratia said gifting the modern equipment to Georgia was a show of "unprecedented support from the Japanese Government to the Agency”. 

Through the stations we will have an effective, modern air monitoring system in Tbilisi,” Bagtaria said. 

The stations will be installed at three different locations in Tbilisi and send information about the level of air pollution to the National Agency of Environment. The stations will operate 24/7 and continuously send data back to the Agency.  

The stations would be placed on Tsereteli Ave and Kazgebi Ave in central parts of Tbilisi and in Varketili suburb.
