The Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities (CAI-Asia) and the World Bank through its Development Grant Facility (DGF) launched an Air Pollution and Greenhouse (GHG) Emissions Data Initiative to help policy makers, development agencies and other stakeholders in Asia have better access to air quality and climate change data to further enrich policy development activities and development interventions relevant to energy and transport sectors and urban development.

For inquiries on this initiative or on how to share data, please contact:

  • May Ajero, Air Quality Program Manager: (may (dot) ajero (at) cai-asia.org)
  • Kaye Patdu, Air Quality Researcher: (kaye (dot) patdu (at) cai-asia.org)

Call for Contributions:

We would like to invite other institutions, corporations, partnerships, forums and other groups working in this field to contribute and share data on air pollution, GHG emissions and related data and statistics for transport and energy sectors. All contributions will be properly referenced in publications as well as in the online open database.

CAI-Asia’s projects with the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Institute for Transport Policy Studies (ITPS) also contribute to this data initiative.

For more information on:

This program involves conducting a review of availability and quality of air pollution, GHG emissions and related data and statistics for transport and energy sectors. Data collection is now ongoing for these countries – Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. Data and statistics collected through this initiative will be made available through the CitiesACT database. General information regarding data quality and/or data generation process/system will also be provided.

By the end of year, air pollution, GHG emissions and related data and statistics for transport and energy sectors will be partially available in the CitiesACT database.
