Clean Air

Air pollution is the most pressing environmental health crisis in the world. It is responsible for more than 6.5 million deaths annually, the bulk of which – 70 per cent – occurs in Asia Pacific. In addition to health hazards, air pollution is a threat to the region’s economy, food and water security, and climate systems. This hampers the region’s efforts to grow sustainably and alleviate poverty.

Leading pollutants in the Region

Sulphur Dioxide
Nitrogen Oxides
Volatile Organic Compounds
Shot-lived Climate Pollutants
Tropospheric Ozone
Black Carbon
Hydro Fluoro Carbons

Many air pollutants are the result of energy use. The burning of fossil fuels and biomass is the principal source of air pollution in urban and rural areas.

WE support National Clean Air Programme
Air pollution is one of the biggest global environmental challenges of today for all nations. To aware people and handle the increasing air pollution problem across the country, a time- bound national level strategy for pan India implementation in a comprehensive manner in the form of National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) was started by Government of India, under the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.
