  • Legislation – establish ambient air quality standards
  • Improved coordination among stakeholders working closely with provincial and city district governments
  • Trial testing of I/M with private sector involvement
  • Phaseout of 2-stroke auto rickshaws in major cities
  • URC, IUCN and city district governments to come together and develop a sustained mass awareness plan/strategy
  • Benchmark from regional countries
  • Establish multi-stakeholder mechanism for AQM
  • Civil society organizations and city district governments
  • Recommended organizations from Lahore workshop
  • Provincial government in Sindh and city government along with IUCN, URC and others will aim to establish such a mechanism

Current government resource allocation is not sufficient for improved AQM. Partnership with CAI-Asia, WB, ADB, and others critical for (a) technical support, (b) financial support, (c) buy-in from the government
