The Ministry of Environment has reported that the air quality situation has improved, with a decrease in PM10 inert particles and PM2.5, which could pose a threat to human health.
The Ministry of Environment in a statement yesterday said the main sources and activities that cause the PM10 and PM2.5 inertia particles to increase include emissions from industrial plants, diesel vehicles, and other fuels, especially wildfires.
Burning grass, agricultural waste, burning forests, burning stumps, and burning solid waste in open areas.
To address these problems and improve the air quality of the capital, the Ministry of Environment notified the sub-national administration as well as the provincial capital departments of the following: 1. You must take measures to prevent wildfires from igniting solid waste in open areas, landfills, and other places. 2. Take precautions to avoid dust from construction sites, infrastructure improvements, and dust on roads. 3. Clean up the streets and public areas; and Educate people to not burn garbage, solid, burning grass, stumps or walls, or any other agricultural waste.
Like other developing countries, Cambodia has seen a steady rise in transport, energy consumption in production, and services. The development of infrastructure and construction has also led to an increase on greenhouse gas emissions.
