Regional Workshop Kitakyushu Initiative Seminar on Urban Air Quality Management, Bangkok, Thailand

February, 2003

Building Effective Partnerships for Urban

Air Quality Management in Asia


Cai asia goals

CAI-Asia Goals

“Air pollution puts the lives of Millions at risk in Asian cities”

  • Sharing knowledge and experiences on air quality management

  • Capacity building

  • Improving policy and regulatory frameworks at the regional level

  • Piloting projects to encourage innovation

Pilot projects

address significant problems faced by several of CAI-Asia members

promote innovative approaches to air quality management

implementation or research

CAI-Asia technical supervision and active involvement of members in implementation

Health impact of air pollution in Asian Cities

Pilot Projects

Criteria

Examples

Vehicle emission factors

Upgrading of diesel refineries to reduce sulfur

Test protocol for fuel additives

Regulatory framework for

CNG usage in

Asian countries

Modeling PM reduction through reduced

sulfur in diesel


Regional policies

Regional Policies

CAI Asia supports the formulation of regional policies and standards aimed at improving air quality management and reduction of air pollution across Asia

Bring ambient air quality standards in Asia in line with WHO guidelines and assess need for ambient PM standards for Asia

Benchmarking of Air Quality Management in Asian Cities

(in cooperation with APMA project)

Adoption of harmonized emission standards across Asia for new vehicles and associated fuel standards to bring Asia in line with European standards by 2010

Strategic Framework for Air Quality Management in Asian Cities

(in cooperation with APMA project)


Rationale coordination cooperation cai asia kitakyushu initiative

Rationale Coordination – CooperationCAI-Asia – Kitakyushu Initiative

  • Existence of more than one city network on air quality management in Asia creates confusion

  • Duplication means waste of resources for network management, and supportive activities

  • Synergy between different initiatives not fully exploited


Cooperation air pollution in megacities of asia apma project and cai asia

Cooperation Air Pollution in Megacities of Asia (APMA) Project and CAI-Asia

  • APMA project was launched in 2001 at same time as CAI-Asia with largely identical objectives

  • Discussions were started to work together to avoid overlap and duplication

  • In December 2002 agreement on Program merger was achieved whereby CAI-Asia takes lead role in establishment and maintenance of network and APMA in benchmarking of AQM and Strategic Framework for AQM, reflecting mutual strengths

  • Mutual representation in management structures of CAI-Asia and APMA

  • APMA and CAI-Asia will jointly organize BAQ 2003 in Seoul in December 2003


Cooperation cai asia and ies program

Cooperation CAI-Asia and IES program

  • Integrated Environmental Strategy (IES) program is supported by US-EPA and provides assistance to cities to develop strategies to improve local air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions

  • In Asia: Shanghai, Beijing, Manila, Seoul, Hyderabad

  • Strong emphasis on scientific analysis of pollution and health data to determine potential impact of potential policy and technology measures

  • CAI-Asia is interested in working with IES because it can help to improve quality of strategies


Cai asia views on networking of cities for better air quality management in asia

CAI-Asia views on networking of cities for better Air Quality Management in Asia

  • Cities participating in a network need to be actively committed to better air quality management: inactive cities harm the reputation of the network

  • Cities need to set up local network within their city, involving national government agencies, NGOs, Academe, private sector, development agencies

  • Development agencies need to learn to share city networks, rather than try to own them

  • Policy formulation in network cities requires better scientific foundation

  • Risk: too much emphasis on workshops without attention for follow-up

Strategy for CAI Asia

Different strategies are not formulated in isolation but are directly related to each other and based on each other

Advantages: (1) reduced costs in strategy formulation, (2) more consistency in strategies, and (3) better chances for successful implementation

Recommendations for cooperation ki and cai asia

Recommendations for Cooperation KI and CAI-Asia

  • Coordination in establishment and strengthening of city network for AQM in Asia at regional level (leading to joint network for AQM between CAI-Asia – APMA and KI)

  • Strengthening of individual networks in cities that are part of regional network (leading to joint responsibility for mobilizing external assistance)

  • Coordination in planning and implementation of supportive activities (policy level, studies, capacity building) (leading to joint projects)

  • Coordination in information collection, analysis and dissemination (leading to joint web site for AQM)
