Clean Air Initiative for Asia


Clean Air Asia - Clean Air Initiative for Asia

Type of Organisation: Research

CAI- Asia promotes better air quality and liveable cities by translating knowledge to policies and actions that reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from transport, energy and other sectors. It was established as the premier air quality network for Asia by the Asian Development Bank, World Bank and USAID in 2001, and operates since 2007 as an independent non - profit organization. 

CAI- Asia has offices in Manila, Beijing and Delhi, networks in eight Asian countries (China, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam) and is a UN recognized partnership of 230 organizations in Asia and worldwide. CAI- Asia uses knowledge and partnerships to enable Asia’s 2500 cities and national governments understand the problems, identify solutions and implement these effectively. 

Our four programs are: Air Quality & Climate Change, Low Emissions Urban Development , Clean Fuels and Vehicles, and Green Freight and Logistics. Its flagship event since 2002, the Better Air Quality conference, brings together more than 500 practitioners, policy makers and the private sector.
