Fostering Partnerships for Tackling the Declining Air Quality in India-UNEP (2017)

Responding to UN Environmental Assembly’s call to UN Environment to support national efforts in addressing air pollution issues, IIEC in collaboration with UN Environment organized roundtables to bring together key stakeholders and experts from the public & private sectors, international donor community, academia, and financing agencies working for the cause of combating air pollution across urban centers in India.

The roundtables witnessed strategic discussions around exploring opportunities for partnerships amongst the donor agencies and public and private sector agencies in India for effective implementation of air quality improvement measures and identified key areas to work in India: 1) Effective mapping of knowledge about the contribution of various sources to air pollution in India, 2) Build capacity of State pollution Control Boards in effective monitoring of air quality and data analysis, 3) Develop monitoring protocols for monitoring health and other human impacts of air pollution, and 4) Work with international agencies for leveraging international climate finance to steer domestic action on air pollution.
