Better Air Quality Conferences
9 November 2010 @ 12:00 am
The Better Air Quality (BAQ) conference is Asia’s largest gathering of air quality stakeholders from government, civil society, academe, private sector, and the international development community. First organized as a local workshop by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2001, BAQs have become major regional events through the efforts of the Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities Center (CAI-Asia) and its partners. CAI-Asia has co-organized regional BAQ conferences in Hong Kong (2002), Philippines (2003), India (2004), Indonesia (2006), Thailand (2008), and Singapore (2010). Now held every two years, the BAQ conference regularly attracts close to a thousand participants from Asia and the rest of the world. The event receives ample coverage by local and international media, including TIME Magazine and the International Herald Tribune.
BAQ is a 3-day conference with pre- and post events held in the days preceding and after the conference. Pre-events and post-events are held during the day preceding and the day following the conference by different organizations on a range of topics related to air quality, such as air pollution from power plants, fuel economy of vehicle fleets, public transport, or the co-benefits of climate change and air quality management. Pre- and post- events can take the form of training courses, workshops, roundtable discussions, or field trips/excursions.
