How Robust are Urban India’s Clean Air Plans?

10 Jun 2020   |   1500-1600 hrs IST

While COVID-19 has impacted health and livelihoods in India, the visible reduction in air pollution levels has given citizens across the country a glimpse of a clean, sustainable future. As 102 non-attainment cities under the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) have already drafted plans for tackling air pollution in the coming years, it is crucial to assess whether these plans are robust enough to have considerable impacts. It is also equally important to discuss the preparedness of all agencies and departments responsible for executing the plans. Citizens, as well, have a critical role to play in helping cities achieve clean air targets.

This webinar will foster discussion on how different stakeholders – pollution control boards, municipal corporations, civil society representatives, citizens and the state and central governments can work together to ensure execution of the plans and make blue skies permanent. The webinar will also mark the launch of our report – ‘How Robust are Urban India’s Clean Air Plans? An Assessment of 102 Cities’.
