RAPIDC – Regional Air Pollution in Developing Countries


SEI is an independent, international research institute specializing in sustainable development and environment issues. It works at local, national, regional and global policy levels. The SEI research programmes aim to clarify the requirements, strategies and policies for a transition to sustainability. These goals are linked to the principles advocated in Agenda 21 and the Conventions such as Climate Change, Ozone Layer Protection and Biological Diversity.

The SEI approach is typically highly collaborative and participatory, involving partners in the regions and places of research so that local knowledge and values are mobilized and explicitly considered. SEI's mission is to support decision-making and induce change towards sustainable development around the world by providing integrative knowledge that bridges science and policy in the field of environment and development.

RAPIDC conducts AQM activities linked to the APMA project and to the regional policy process in South Asia on air pollution: the Malé Declaration.
