The objective of the technical services is to strengthen the capacity of the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency (EEAA) in terms of identifying the sources of particulate matter air pollution, and the steps necessary leading up to that. The program is foreseen to be a two-year initiative (FY2019-20). The following three activities will be implemented sequentially.
(a) Particulate Matter filter sampling. The scope of work under this assignment is to provide chemical data from samplers on air quality (in particular on atmospheric concentrations of particulate matter pollution and an identification of the particle sources) in selected locations in Greater Cairo. The exact sites to be sampled, the duration and frequency of sampling, and the equipment used for sampling will be identified jointly with EEAA. The equipment selection for the technical assessment was performed previously by a global vendor (document to be shared with the selected contractor). (b) Chemical composition analysis (CCA). Two types of data will be provided for the period and frequencies agreed upon with EEAA: PM2.5 and PM10 concentration data (based on gravimetric analysis for mass), and chemical analysis of particles (which will ultimately be used to support the source apportionment analyses; see note below). The field sampling of PM2.5, PM10, nitric acid, and ammonia is to be conducted by local partners (already identified by the World Bank), however, training is to be administered by the selected contractor.
