AirQualityAsia

AirQualityAsia (AQA), a project of Sustainable World Inc., is an international air quality advocacy group building on a successful parliamentary action model with the vision to secure a breathable future for Asia. Its mission is to provide measurable improvement in air quality in Asia through national policy and emissions regulation strengthening. The goal is to have three key pilot Asian countries – India, Indonesia and Pakistan – meet the 2020/2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals related to Air Quality.
Pollution is hindering global economic growth, destroying our health, and is killing three times more people around the world than AIDS, malaria, and Tuberculosis combined according to the newly released Lancet Commission Report. In 2015 nine million people died of pollution, seven million of those deaths were attributed to air pollution alone. Air pollution is the biggest health crisis on the planet right now.
Asia’s energy transition is a global litmus test for climate change, global health
Asia's rapidly growing economies produce the majority of the world's global CO2 emissions. World Bank President Jim Kim is on record as saying "if the Asia region implements the coal-based plans right now... then we blow the carbon budget, we are finished." The energy transition of Asia, in this critical window of the next three years, is also essential for global health as air pollution crosses boundaries, oceans, destroys human health, creates welfare costs to national GDP, and reduces agricultural output.
Identifying and closing the gap on air quality links the UN SDGs 2030 and the Paris Agreement
Since 2014, governments working through the United Nations negotiated two major global agreements on Climate Change and Sustainability. The Sustainable Development Goals 2030, agreed upon on September 25, 2015, set specific environmental targets including ambient air-quality to be achieved by 2030. The Paris Agreement, which came into force on November 4, 2016, sets a global target for CO2 emissions with global temperature targets of less than 2 degrees above 19th century level. All countries have agreed to the SDGs and 169 countries have ratified the Paris Agreement. Most Asian parliaments have also ratified, making it legally binding on them.
