Long Term Vision for Urban Air Quality in Asia (2008)

This document is prepared in preparation for the Second Governmental Meeting on Urban Air Quality in Asia, organized by UNEP in cooperation with the Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities Center on 12-13 November, 2008 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The long-term vision for Asian cities on urban air quality for 2030 is: “Healthy people in healthy cities, which put emphasis on prevention of air pollution and which implement effective and appropriate strategies for the abatement of air pollution”. A good indicator for the successful implementation of the Long Term Vision will be that by 2030 air quality in Asian cities has made significant progress towards achieving WHO air quality guideline values through the implementation of comprehensive air quality management strategies.
