Air Quality Management in South China and the Pearl River Delta 珠江三角洲与中国南方空气质量管理

The objective of this project is to strengthen air quality management (AQM) at the city and provincial level in South China.

Phase I Activities

  • Assessment of AQM in about 3 cities/city clusters of South China Clean. The application of the Clean Air Management Assessment Tool to the three cities/city clusters to identify:
        (a) What needs to be done to improve existing AQM through an understanding of strengths and gaps;
        (b) How integrated AQM is at the provincial and city level and where this can be improved;
      (c) Barriers and need for external support and expertise.
  • Facilitated technical assistance to strengthen AQM in PRD supported by national and international experts and organizations, which could include research, training, and visits to other cities outside of PRD or China with best practices.
  • Establishment of a South China Clean Air Forum. With the results of assessments of 3 cities/city clusters and technical assistance provided, the forum is held in 2013 as a platform for PRD provinces and cities to interact with national government agencies, and other national/international experts and organizations (see The 9th China City AQM Workshop).

Phase II Activities

  • Continue the organization of the PRD Clean Air Forum through:
        a) promoting the replication of successful foreign experiences of regional collaboration on specific AQM topics or areas in response to PRD needs; b) exchanging information and practices between all PRD cities and Hong Kong, SAR including outputs of this proposed project; and
      c) identifying challenges and next steps for improvement;
  • Provide capacity building and technical assistance (TA) to 2‐3 selected cities through compilation of best practices, in‐depth training, city visits and TA reports production on specific topics. (See Training on Air Pollution Source Apportionment: Approach, Model and Management 大气污染源解析:方法、模型与管理培训 )
  • Compile an excel‐style database to keep track of major completed research focused on air pollution problems in the PRD and share it with GDEPD, all PRD city EPBs and other agencies and organizations working on AQM in PRD or relevant to PRD and South China; and
  • Develop Clean Air Report and case study for one selected champion city in the PRD.
