Mission & History


Clean Air Asia was established in 2001 as the premier air quality network for Asia by the Asian Development Bank, World Bank, and USAID. Our mission is to promote better air quality and livable cities by translating knowledge to policies and actions that reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from transport, energy and other sectors.

Since 2007, Clean Air Asia is a UN recognized partnership of almost 250 organizations in Asia and worldwide with 6 Country Networks (Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam). Clean Air Asia is a registered non-stock non-profit organization headquartered in Manila, Philippines, and with offices in Beijing, China and Delhi, India. Clean Air Asia is governed by its articles of incorporation, by-laws and operations manual approved by its Board of Trustees.
