Better Air Quality (BAQ) 2008
was held in Bangkok, Thailand
12-14 November 2008

Join the CAI-Asia Partnership


The Air Pollution, Poverty and Health Effects (APPH) project is a CAI-Asia pilot project co-funded by Asian Development Bank and Health Effects Institute (HEI) to develop a conceptual framework of the linkages between urban air pollution and poverty in the Asian context, the coping mechanisms of the poor, and air quality management (AQM) policy mechanism, which can target poor people.

Although there is evidence from research studies in the United States, Europe and Latin America that economic deprivation increases the magnitude of air pollution-related morbidity and mortality, there currently is none on Asia. This project will focus on the conduct of a case study in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam that will hopefully result in a methodology that can also be used for other Asian cities.
