Nairobi - Post Report Question and Answers

Pollution index (Good, Moderate, Unhealthy, or Very Unhealthy)?

Moderate. Wonderful foliage and flowers. - Dec 2009

Not bad, except in winter when people are burning stuff (what is it?) to keep warm - then it can be hazy on some days. - Jul 2009

Moderate. When it rains the pollen comes out. Lots of agricultural fires and tons of diesel exhaust from cars/trucks. - Jun 2008

It is good to moderate at home but very unhealthy when you are stuck in traffic behind a truck or matatu that doesn’t know the meaning of the words “emission controls." There are also the random burnings of things (usually trash). - Feb 2008
