Description Clean Air Asia is an international non-governmental organization that leads the regional mission for better air quality and healthier, more livable cities in Asia. We aim to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in 1000+ cities in Asia through policies and programs that cover air quality, transport and industrial emissions and energy use.
Objectives We work with ministries (energy, environment, health and transport), cities in Asia, private sector and development agencies to provide leadership and technical knowledge in the following areas: Air Quality and Climate Change, Low Emissions Urban Development, Clean Fuels and Vehicles and Green Freight and Logistics.
Activities Clean Air Asia’s approach is hinged on science-based, actionable guidance combined with an ethos of partnerships and collaboration as key drivers for meaningful and lasting impact. Our Better Air Quality Conference, a biennial event first held in 2002 that gathers over 1,000 policy makers, practitioners and industry leaders in coming up with solutions for cleaner air and livable cities. Clean Air Asia was established in 2001 as the premier air quality network for Asia by the Asian Development Bank, World Bank, and USAID. Our mission is to promote better air quality and livable cities by translating knowledge to policies and actions that reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from transport, energy and other sectors.
