CADTIME addresses air quality issues that affect people's health in Delhi, India. The project investigates ways to deliver significant reductions in levels of air pollution in the Indian capital. Interventions must be affordable and effective. They must consider and respond to future changes.

CADTIME brings together a consortium of institutions and experts from across both India and the UK. It is part of a larger consortium of five projects. These are running concurrently as part of the Atmospheric Pollution and Human Health in an Indian Megacity (APHH India) programme. APHH India is a four-year programme. It is jointly funded by the:

  • Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
  • Medical Research Council (MRC)
  • Newton–Bhabha Fund
  • Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES)
  • Department of Biotechnology (DBT)
