Urban Air Quality Management and Sustainable Mobility for Cities

July 4, 2016

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising one-day orientation workshop on ‘Urban Air Quality Management and Sustainable Mobility for Cities’ on July 4, 2016 at India Habitat Centre in New Delhi. This programme is part of our efforts to bring together policymakers from the key metro cities of India to address the air quality monitoring management strategies and its linkage with the transportation sector including road map for new and in-use vehicles, public transport and multi-modal integration and parking and taxation restraints.

This orientation workshop aims to bring cities together to share the critical strategies that they have started to take. Also the leading experts will convene to inform the process better. This programme represents our initiative to promote good regulatory practices to meet clean air targets.

We would like to invite you to participate in this orientation programme (or nominate a senior concerned official) and share the key strategies in your city to improve air quality management and specific transport management strategies to meet clean air targets. 

This interactive forum will cover lectures/presentations and interactions on the following wide range of subjects:

  • Strengthening urban air quality monitoring and management to reduce health impacts of air pollution;  

  • Effective measures to reduce emissions for on-road vehicles; 

  • Transition to clean vehicles and fuels through a roadmap that reduces emissions to achieve clean air;  

  • Key issues, challenges, existing policy framework, best planning practices to ensure safe access, walking and cycling in cities and  

  • Enhancing the quality of public transport, augmenting its supply, benchmarking and evaluating its performance to enable the shift from private vehicles to public transport.
