How Can Asia Manage Air Pollution and Climate Change?
From Understanding Impacts to Implementing Solutions
In 2018, a high-profile United Nations report on the multiple benefits of clean air identified 25 solutions that could improve the health and well-being in Asia while mitigating climate change and achieving other development priorities. At the same, there have been several important advances in research on similar themes in Japan, China, Korea, Indonesia, and many other countries in Asia. Research on the multiple benefits of managing air pollution and climate change could presumably inform policy for years to come. There nonetheless remains significant gaps between research that focuses on understanding air pollution and climate change impacts and experiences with implementing solutions to these air pollution and climate change problems. This workshop will bring together an internationally recognized set of experts from Japan, China, Korea and Europe is to discuss how Asia can close the gap between understanding impacts and implementing solutions.
