AISD strives to promote a healthy environment for its students, staff, parents, contractor partners, and visitors to our campus.
Dhaka has environmental concerns for the quality of air, among other environmental concerns that can affect us. It is the objective of this Policy to detail the mitigation measures taken at AISD to maintain a healthy environment.
Exposure to elevated levels of air pollution causes both short-term and long-term health effects. The extent of those effects varies depending on individual risk factors such as age, existing cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, and nature of activities performed. Research has found children (ages 0 to 18) and the elderly (age 65+) are the most susceptible receptors and thus require additional mitigation measures as compared to the general population.
