The project aims to support the integration of climate change and air pollution at the city level through capacity building. It contains four consequential activities:
1) Convene focus group discussions with city policymakers and experts (health, transport, infrastructure) for needs assessment regarding the knowledge and tools cities should obtain in integrating SLCP reductions into policies and practices;
2) Develop a training curriculum drawing from existing materials to support the integration of SLCP reduction into policies and practices for cities in Asia;
3) Work with 3 cities to integrate SLCPs reduction into relevant policies and practices;
4) Gather inputs to report on the CCAC DI indicators and associated data collection questionnaire/initiative reporting template.
Learnings will be well documented and shared in major regional events, such as the Beijing International Forum for Metropolitan Clean Air Actions, the Seoul Mayors Forum on Climate Change, and the ASEAN High-Level Seminar on Environmentally Sustainable Cities.
