Integrated Air Quality Management (AQM) and Climate Change Mitigation in the framework of the World Bank’s Pollution Management and Environmental Health (PMEH) Programme

Objective and activities

Millions of deaths occur annually due to air pollution especially caused by particulate matter, generated mainly by industry and transport. These Short Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCP) are also responsible for approx. 40% of global warming. Using the partner cities as examples, the programme supports the development of effective policies and integrated Air Quality Management (AQM) and GHG emissions reductions plans. It complements the efforts of Worl Bank´s PMEH programme with capacity, institutional and legal framework development and supports the fulfilment of the NDC in the partner countries. The data base for air pollution control (emission inventories, air quality monitoring) will be improved and legal frameworks as well as selected urban land-use plans will be reviewed and adjusted. Capacity development and knowledge transfer between Germany and PMEH partner countries support the development of AQM plans and GHG mitigation measures in further PMEH partner countries.
