COUNTRY NETWORKS




To mobilize action at the country and local levels, Clean Air Asia works with eight Country Networks. They are part of the Clean Air Asia Partnership and are organized as registered associations; as non-stock, non-profit entities; or as informal networks. Each is represented by a Clean Air Asia Country Network Coordinator. They meet at the annual Country Network Summit to share achievements, scope future work, and foster stronger collaboration.

Country Networks promote reductions in air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transport, energy and other sectors by translating knowledge to policy and action in their respective countries. Country Networks also raise awareness, strengthen capacity for air quality management, assist in developing clean air policies, and implement pilot projects at the national and local levels.
