Tackling Tehran's air pollution requires more active interactions between [responsible] organizations and private sector and the municipality welcomes new startup ideas to face this challenge, Nasimonline quoted Mohammad Farjoud as saying.

Describing air pollution as a "complex and multi-dimensional threat", Farjoud noted that many organizations are responsible for this problem - not just the municipality. There is no doubt that moving towards "smart cities" with the assistance and investment of private sector can have a profound influence on resolving the issue, he added.
