I. BACKGROUND

Clean Air Asia is an international non-governmental organization leading the regional mission for better air quality, and healthier, more livable cities throughout Asia. Our mission is to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in Asia and contribute to the development of a more sustainable, equitable and healthier region. We empower governments and cities by inspiring action and focusing efforts on the planning and implementation of solutions at scale, fostering regional cooperation to address issues of mutual concern, and ensuring the integration of air quality management across sectors and institutions. Our work focuses on implementing solutions that reduce air pollution, and its detrimental health impacts and mitigate the climate crisis. We do so by providing policy guidance, building capacity, and making a compelling case for action among stakeholders at the city, national, and regional levels. Since 2008, we have been a United Nations-recognized partnership comprised of more than 250 organizations in Asia and internationally, with six Country Networks (Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam). Our headquarters are in Manila, Philippines, and we have offices in Beijing, China, and New Delhi, India.

 

Clean Air Asia is working on reducing emissions from coal-fired power plants through policy reform and strengthening the enforcement of more stringent science-based regulations. We plan to strengthen the policy advocacy of civil society organizations to advance clean air and clean energy agenda in the Philippines by providing them with datasets and communications materials on coal use in the country.

The Data Visualization Specialist will create distinctive visual content, including scrollytelling, maps, and charts, for three story projects in collaboration with Clean Air Asia’s data analyst and communications team.
