Globally, there is a growing concern on air pollution and its impact on health and the environment. To date, World Health Organization (WHO) reported that there are 4.2 million deaths every year due to exposure to ambient (outdoor) air pollution. They also reported that 91% of the worldâ€™s population lives in places with air quality exceeding WHO guideline limits. The project aims to predict air quality and occurrence of haze in Brunei Darussalam.
