Location / Venue: Colombo, Sri Lanka
Country: Sri Lanka

The Integrated Conference is expected to bring together a thousand policymakers, technical experts, practitioners and industry leaders from around the region for Asia’s leading event on air quality, covering key sectors of transport, energy, industry and climate change.
Selected abstracts should present innovative and smart solutions (policy, institution, technology and financing) that work in or can be adapted to the Asian context particularly those that  (a) significantly reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases from energy, industry, transport, and area sources, (b) improve the management of air quality and greenhouse gases, and (c) ensure a safe, equitable, environment and people-friendly transport system by accelerating the shift towards more environmentally sustainable transport. Abstracts that tackle emerging topics and issues such as reduction of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), low cost air quality monitoring, use of information technology in enforcement, citizen participation are particularly welcome.

We encourage you to submit abstracts on:

  • Air Quality and GHG Management
  • Ambient Air Quality and Impacts
  • Low Emissions Urban Development
  • Freight Transport Emissions Management
  • Passenger Transport Emissions Management
  • Motor Vehicle Emissions and Fuels
  • Power and Industry Emissions Management
  • Management of Other Sources of Emissions

Abstracts can cover academic, technical- or policy-related studies, projects and programs relevant to the integrated conference theme. An Asian focus is required and abstracts can relate to the city, national or regional levels. Abstracts with a focus on Europe, USA or other parts of the world should clearly state the relevance of the proposed abstract to Asia. Priority will be given to abstracts which focus on new research and innovative policies and solutions.

development and demonstration under grant agreement no 603218.
