Integrated Programme for Better Air Quality in Asia

Technology Roundtable and Fair for Combating Air Pollution and Climate Change in Asia

March 22, 2022, 8:30-15:30 (PH time)

The IBAQ is supporting the implementation of clean air action plans and technologies to help address air pollution and climate change in Asia. Aligned with this objective, IGES and Clean Air Asia (CAA) co-organised a virtual technology event with support from the Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ).

The event aimed to introduce technologies that can help address air pollution and climate change in Southeast Asian cities. The event also fostered opportunities for transferring and tailoring technologies to city needs. The event was based on the results of a series of needs assessments, capacity building, and technical assistance work with air quality and climate change practitioners from cities in Southeast Asia. Those activities pointed out the need for ambient air quality monitoring technologies, sustainable transport solutions and solar photovoltaic (PV) applications, among others.

The event targeted businesses in Japan and other countries, encouraging them to make connections with cities interested in sustainable transport, renewable energy and air pollution monitoring technologies.
