NCAP: Developing air quality management plan for industrial areas

Industries are one of the major contributors of air pollution in India and yet steps taken so far to curb pollution from the sector fall short on both strategy and scale of its implementation. The National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) introduced in December, 2018, recognises 132 non-attainment cities that have prepared the clean air action plans to achieve 20-30 percent reduction in particulate pollution by 2024 from the 2017 level. Most of these city action plans lack in-depth analysis of industrial pollution and requisite mitigation measures. These plans largely fail to capture all possible emission sources in industrial areas and therefore, are weak in its conception.

Reocognising this, CSE is organizing a four days training programme on “NCAP: Developing air quality management plan for industrial areas”. The aim of the programmeis to build capacity of the participants on methodology of preparing action plan to reduce air pollution from industrial sources to achieve an overall objective of clean air. The course will stress on step-by-step methodology; from identification of issues, to inventorisation of pollution sources, sector specific best practices, role of small and medium scale industries, learning skills to conceive phase-wise action plans using data-points and strategies for its implementation.
