Multiple Benefits of Air Pollution Interventions: Case Studies in Asia
Moderator: Ms. Maria Katherina Patdu, Associate Program Officer, UNEP Bangkok

In Asia Pacific, over 90 per cent of the region’s population are exposed to levels of air pollution that pose a significant risk to their health. Everyone is affected, but the impacts fall heavily on the most vulnerable – children, women, elderly, and people living in poverty. Many air pollutants also contribute directly to the climate crisis and negatively affect the environment and ecosystems. These conditions threaten the region’s sustainable development agenda.
Fortunately, this region is also home to many solutions that can help beat air pollution, save lives, and protect our planet.
The event introduces air quality interventions that provide multiple benefits for health and climate, and demonstrates with case studies their application in Asian countries.
