India Clean Air Connect is a response to air quality convenings hosted by the India Climate Collaborative, Clean Air Fund, ClimateWorks Foundation and Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation in 2019 and 2020.
India's air pollution is not limited to one city or one source
Solving for India's air pollution crisis means:
Aligning efforts across different disciplines to address multiple sources of pollution
Improving air quality in all 124 non-attainment cities, 73 polluted industrial clusters and more
Amplifying and strengthening existing efforts and networks
124 Non-attainment cities
73 Critically polluted industrial clusters
If your work seeks to improve India’s air quality through communication, advocacy, research, policy change, planning, litigation, community engagement or market-based solutions, join #IndiaCleanAirConnect
About the Event
This event will launch the “Asia Clean Blue Skies Program” of the Asian Development Bank. The first phase of the program will be implemented from September 2022 until September 2023. The overall goal of the program is to scale up investments in improving air quality.
At the launch, speakers will provide an overview of the program scope, background, ambition, aims and timeline; case studies and knowledge sharing events done at the Program preparatory phase; and outline one of the projects planned for Phase 1.
There will also be a panel discussion with representatives from a developing member country, multilateral financial institution, non-government organization, and research institute to provide their initial impressions on the Program and possible synergies with their organization’s plans and priorities.
