Third Country Media Briefing on challenge of urban air quality and mobility management

Kathmandu, Nepal

postponed

Almost every South Asian city today is reeling under severe air pollution and gridlocked urban traffic.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi, invites you to attend a Media Briefing on the Challenges of Air Quality and Mobility Management in Cities in South Asia. The details of the briefing are as under:

New Delhi-based CSE, a research and advocacy institution, has been a pioneer in campaigning for clean air in cities. In the mid and late 1990s, it had successfully initiated a campaign to improve Delhi’s air quality; the campaign resulted in the introduction of CNG as the fuel of choice in the city’s public transport. In the last decade and a half, CSE has continued to work towards providing solutions in terms of policy change.

This meeting is the second in a series of country media briefings that CSE is planning across the South Asian region, the previous ones held in Dhaka and Colombo. In it, we will look forward to understanding the nature of the problem menacing our cities, as Delhi and Kathmandu learn from each other's experiences. Experts from CSE and Nepal would be addressing the participating media people. We will also hope to join hands in battling these problems and in arriving at viable and sustainable solutions.

Please do join us at the briefing.

Participation

  • Participation at the Briefing is open to journalists working in Nepal.

  • There is no participation / registration fee.

  • All we need is an email from you confirming your participation. The email should contain your contact details.
