A start has been made with carrying out a survey among CAI-Asia city members, which covers current air quality levels, monitoring of air quality and programs put in place to improve AQM and reduce pollution. (See also Benchmarking activities undertaken by APMA Project). This survey also intends to identify needs to further improve AQM. The results of information collection will be documented on the CAI-Asia web site.

There is a growing awareness that successful AQM strategies can only be realized if there is broad based involvement in their formulation and implementation. City members joining CAI-Asia pledge that they will set up such a multi-stakeholder forum to formulate a comprehensive AQM strategy. It is not part of CAI-Asia activities to provide direct financial support for the setting up of these multi stakeholder forums. This is already being done by individual CAI-Asia members and is better done like that. CAI-Asia can, however, play an important role in linking individual cities to prospective funders. It will also document the multi sector forums that are being put in place on the CAI-Asia web site.

  • Document formulation and implementation of strategies already in place on CAIAsia web site
  • Link emerging city networks which are looking for external assistance in the formulation of strategies to prospective funders
  • Assist in promoting coordination and cooperation among organizations providing funding for the same city based AQM strategies.
  • Promote a coherent approach to formulation of AQM strategies based on the Strategic Framework for AQM under formulation
  • Lobby among prospective donors on the importance to make funding available for the formulation and implementation of AQM strategies formulated/implemented by CAI-Asia members.
