The project aims to support cities in Asia in integrating SLCP reductions into their climate change and air pollution policies and practices at the city level through capacity building. It contains four consequential activities:
- convene focus group discussions with city policymakers and experts (health, transport, infrastructure) for needs assessment regarding the knowledge and tools cities should obtain in integrating SLCP reductions into policies and practices;
- develop a training curriculum drawing from existing materials to support the integration of SLCP reduction into policies and practices for cities in Asia;
- work with three cities to integrate SLCPs reduction into relevant policies and practices;
- gather inputs to report on the CCAC DI indicators and associated data collection questionnaire/initiative reporting template.
As one of the project deliverables, the Training Curriculum: Integrating Air Pollution and Climate Change Planning in Cities in Asia was released in 2021, aiming to familiarize urban policymakers in the region with the knowledge and tools needed to strengthen the integration between air pollution and climate change planning.
The project was funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and was jointly implemented by the ICLEI East Asia Secretariat, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), and Clean Air Asia (CAA).
