Project I: The Clean Air Project in India

“The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency to address India’s chronic problem of air pollution. An April 2020 report by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has established the correlation between long-term exposure to air pollution and COVID-19 mortality: “people living in high pollution cities are more likely to have compromised respiratory, cardiac and other systems – and are therefore more vulnerable to COVID-19’s impacts.”4
According to the 2019 World Air Quality Report, India is home to 21 of the 30 most polluted cities in the world, where air quality can be as much as ten times over the safe limits of air pollution recommended by WHO.”

 

TERI, SDC launched Clean Air Project in India (CAP India) initiative to improve air quality in their cities. This project was implemented by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) in partnership with city authorities.
