Green is Gold, and clean air is health and wealth. There is increasing awareness of the multiple benefits from reducing air pollution. Efforts to improve air quality improves health, supports sustainable development, and protects the climate. Cities are at the forefront of these efforts and are critically important in the development and implementation of clean air actions.
In 1998 Beijing began an intensified air pollution control program, and over the last 20 years the city has implemented a series of measures including energy infrastructure optimization, coal-fired pollution control, and vehicle emission controls. Air quality improved in a sustainable way alongside rapid economic development and city expansion. From these efforts new experiences and lessons were learned.
The Global Climate Action Summit provides an opportunity to review how a city like Beijing has built an air quality management system thatguarantees sustainable and effective development and implementation of air pollution control programs, how scientific research and new technology helps support policy making, and the effectiveness of the program.
This side event will discuss:
A soon to be released report by Tsinghua University and international experts on the evolution of pollution interventions and future measures to tackle air pollution more effectively.
How lessons from Beijing’s experience can be shared with cities around the world facing similar air pollution issues.
Recommendations on how to integrate traditional air pollution control and climate change mitigation for the city to consider in its next air quality strategy.
The event will bring together partners who have worked with Beijing.
UN Environment has long cooperated with Beijing, a relationship that started with an assessment of Beijing’s performance of its Green Olympics commitment during the preparation and hosting of the 2008 Olympic Games. UN Environment has since kept close track on Beijing’s air pollution control process and progress.
California has built a close relationship and long cooperation with Beijing on air pollution control since the beginning of this century. The cooperation extends to climate change, scientific innovation, and other areas.
The international organizations, Energy Foundation China, ICCT, ICLEI have been involved in the program with Beijing over the past decade, and have witnessed the changes happened over that time.
