Orientation Programme on Managing Urban Air Quality: Focus on Clean Vehicle Technology, Fuels and Mobility Management

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising a three-day orientation programme on Managing Urban Air Quality: Focus on Clean Vehicle Technology, Fuels and Mobility Management in New Delhi from August 6 - 8, 2014 for government officials from different cities of India. The objective of this forum is to promote good regulatory practices in air quality management, clean vehicle technology, fuels and management of in-use vehicle fleet and mobility management.

Managing urban air quality is turning out to be a serious governance challenge in Indian cities. More than half of our cities are reeling under severe particulate pollution. Even smaller cities and towns are getting extremely polluted with serious health impacts. Vehicles are a special challenge as vehicular emissions contribute significantly to human exposure. How clean is our air also depends on how clean our engines and fuels are, how clean they remain over time and the nature of the transportation system and their modal share in cities. Many Indian cities have begun to implement clean air action plans. Vehicular pollution control is one of the key strategies of these plans. 

Course content: 

• Pollution challenge of urbanisation 

• Air pollution sources and contribution to ambient air pollution 

• Understanding air quality, trends and monitoring in cities 

• Why vehicles are a special challenge? 

• Meeting national ambient air quality standards 

• Strategies to better urban air quality 

• Vehicle technology and clean fuel roadmap 

• Gaseous fuel programme – emissions and safety management

• Challenges of in-use vehicles and transit traffic 

• Vehicle inspection system in India and ways to improve it

• Mobility management

Target group: Officials from State Pollution Control Boards, Pollution Control Committees, transport departments, bus transport corporations and others
