The City Solutions Toolkit supports the implementation of the Guidance Framework for Better Air Quality in Asian Cities. The Toolkit covers elements needed for the effective design and successful implementation of clean air action plans including the fundamental components of air quality management: air quality monitoring and standards, emissions inventories, modeling, health and other impact assessment and communicating air quality. Guidance on operationalizing clean air action plans including prioritizing solutions, adopting technologies and financing are also provided.
Air quality managers and technical officers from the local government, researchers, and other AQM practitioners performing air quality monitoring and data handling, as well as emissions inventories and air quality modeling. Within the clean air action planning process, these data will be used in baselining, setting air quality goals and emission reduction targets, and in evaluating impact of control measures implemented.
Health administrators and technical officers from the local government, medical professionals, and researchers focusing on the impacts of air pollution on health and the environment, especially in relation to the monitored levels of pollutants. Results of health and environmental impact assessments can be used as input data in estimating the economic cost of air pollution or in cost-benefit analyses of specific pollution control measures.
Communication and other local government officers, media, educators and public campaigners involved in effectively communicating air quality and the solutions that can be done to reduce air pollution.
Air quality managers, administrators and technical officers from all local government agencies who are directly and indirectly involved in AQM (i.e. Planning, Transport, Health, Environment, etc.), policymakers and other AQM stakeholders (universities and research institutions, non-government organizations, private sector, community groups or associations) focused on the development of policies, projects and implementation plans related on reducing emissions, mitigation negative impacts of air pollution and improving overall AQM.
