About Clean Air Asia

Clean Air Asia (formerly Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities) promotes better air quality and livable cities by translating knowledge to policies and actions that reduce air pollution and greenhouse emissions from transport, energy, and other sectors.

Clean Air Asia was established as the leading air quality management network for Asia by the Asian Development Bank, World Bank and USAID in 2001, and operates since 2007 as an independent non-profit organization. Clean Air Asia has offices in Manila, Beijing and Delhi, networks in eight Asian countries (China, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam) and is a UN recognized partnership of more than 240 organizations in Asia and worldwide.

Clean Air Asia uses knowledge and partnerships to enable Asia’s 1,000+ cities and national governments understand the problems and identify effective policies and measures. Our four programs are: Air Quality and Climate Change, Low Emissions Urban Development, Clean Fuels and Vehicles, and Green Freight and Logistics.

The biennial Better Air Quality (BAQ) conference is the flagship event of Clean Air Asia bringing experts, policy and decision makers together to network, learn and share experiences on air quality management. Past BAQs have proven to influence policies, initiate new projects and establish partnerships.

Programs & Projects on Transport & Climate Change

Our objective is to visibly contribute to achieving the Clean Air Asia outcomes, to in turn contribute to the Asia goals for the four program areas. These outcomes are that through Clean Air Asia’s role as a trusted change maker:
•    Decision makers use reliable analysis, knowledge, data and effective tools to understand the problems and identify solutions
•    Stakeholders at the city, national and regional level cooperate better through networks & partnerships
•    Policies and programs are in place that are science-based, stakeholder inclusive, and effective

Our four programs to work towards these goals are: Air Quality & Climate Change, Low Emissions Urban Development, Clean Fuels and Vehicles, and Green Freight and Logistics.
