BAQ 2023

Clean Air Asia, along with co-organizers, the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (a UNEP convened initiative), presents the 11th Better Air Quality Conference (BAQ) to be held on 15-17 November 2023, with pre-events on 13-14 November, at the ADB Headquarters, Manila, Philippines.

BAQ 2023 is themed Ambition to Action: Clean Air for Health and the Climate. With a comprehensive focus on science as the basis for action, integrated solutions, and innovative financing mechanisms, the BAQ 2023 will strongly advocate for heightened ambition and enhanced action addressing the critical issues of air pollution and climate change.

The objectives of the BAQ 2023 conference are to:

  • Share knowledge and dialogue on the latest science, solutions and financing models for the transformative shifts needed.
  • Provide a platform for interaction focused on the practicalities of the required shifts in energy generation, industry, transportation, agriculture, waste management, and urban development.
  • Provide a platform for advancing key global and regional initiatives forward such as CCAC’s Clean Air Flagship Program, UNESCAP-led Regional Action Programme on Air Pollution, and the Global Methane Pledge.
  • Identify clean air projects and initiatives and potential sources of funding
