First Country Media Briefing on challenge of urban air quality and mobility management
Dhaka, January 22,2011
CSE organised its First Country Media Briefing on “challenge of urban air quality and mobility management” in Dhaka on January 22,2011.
All South Asian Cities are suffering from vehicular pollution and mobility issues; Dhaka is no exception. This media briefing was organised to enter in a dialogue and join hands to find a way towards better air quality standards and improved mobility management.
The half a day workshop was attended by over seventy media personnels, both from electronic and print media, in both English and Bengali.
Across India, growing volumes of vehicles on city roads are turning the dream of urban mobility into a nightmare: traffic conditions are deteriorating, air pollution is hitting the peak, cities are grinding to a halt, and thousands are dying from air pollution-induced diseases.
