Clean Air, Climate, and Energy - Policy Opportunities for EAP and SAR

April 26-29, 2024
Zhongguan Xinyuan Global Village of Peking University
clean air event

World Bank (Co-host), Energy Foundation China (Co-host), Peking University (Implementation)

Air pollution is the world’s leading environmental cause of illness and premature death, causing 6.7 million premature deaths per year. Air pollution is also a sign of global imbalances, as 95% of deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. Asia, in particular, is an air pollution hotspot. Specifically, out of the 6.7 million premature deaths per year due to poor air quality, two thirds occur in Asia. Many countries in Asia are working in the battlefield for cleaner air. New air quality bills are being approved; clean air action plans are being implemented; and new technologies are being employed to strengthen monitoring, supervision and enforcement. Along this route, knowledge sharing and collaboration is extremely important. Working together will enable us to move faster and more effectively. This is also why the World Bank, Energy Foundation China, and Peking University jointly organize this event, to promote regional knowledge sharing and collaboration.
