Responding to the United Nations Environmental Assembly’s call to support national efforts in addressing air pollution issues, IIEC and UN Environment organized a roundtable on “Fostering Partnerships for Tackling the Declining Air Quality in Indian Cities - Opportunities for Energy Management.” The event was held on 20th January 2017 at the UN Premises in New Delhi.

The roundtable brought together key stakeholders and experts from the government, the international donor community, industry and academia to discuss opportunities for combating air pollution in Indian urban centres through smart energy management in the utility and industrial sectors.


The event included presentations by UN Environment and IIEC, as well as by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and other experts on air quality. During subsequent discussion, participants addressed issues, concerns, opportunities and solutions related to tackling air pollution in Indian cities. Participants from the industrial sector highlighted the need for raising awareness and capacity building at the industrial cluster level on the potential of energy management to tackle air pollution. Many also emphasized the need for public-private partnership models for implementing measures to combat air pollution, as well as sustained efforts to publicize available air quality data.
