City cooperation promoted at 2016 Northeast Asian International Forum on Air Quality

Convening local government leaders of cities from China, Japan, Korea, and Mongolia, the session on East Asia Clean Air Cities organized by the ICLEI East Asia Secretariat and Seoul Metropolitan Government will be held in Seoul City Hall on 19 May as part of the 2016 Northeast Asian International Forum on Air Quality Improvement, to promote city-to-city cooperation.

The East Asia Clean Air Cities (EACAC) is a new initiative by ICLEI East Asia and partners to support cities in the region to accelerate local actions against air pollution through regional multilateral cooperation. With participating cities and international partners of EACAC, the session will focus on innovative solutions and city-to-city cooperation. The presentations will allow participants to exchange experiences, approaches, and strategies for addressing air pollution in the East Asian region.

Participating cities in the EACAC program will express their commitment to making concrete actions to improve air quality by joining EACAC at the closing session. The nine participating cities include Beijing City, Guiyang City, Shenzhen City, Sichuan Province (China), Kitakyushu City, Tokyo City (Japan), Seoul City (Korea), and Ulaanbaatar City (Mongolia). Jinan City (China) cannot attend the session but will also participate in the EACAC program.

As the secretariat of EACAC, ICLEI East Asia will bridge cities with partners and solution providers who have the knowledge, expertise, and policy tools to meet the needs of local governments in enhancing air quality.
