Iceland Poised to Achieve SDGs, Launches Online Air Pollution Monitoring Site

September 8, 2017

While Iceland continues to meet many of its sustainable development goals, either through the United Nations 2030 Agenda, the Kyoto Protocol, or with the country’s own sustainability initiative, Welfare for the Future, there is a growing issue of air quality in the urban areas.
