Breathing cleaner air: ten scalable solutions for Indian cities

Motivated by the current leadership for a Clean India, a self-organized task force has developed a set of ten scalable solutions to clean the air. They have synthesized available data on sources of air pollution, its transport over long distances, its impact on public health, food production, regional climate, to arrive at the solutions that can significantly help reduce air pollution in Indian cities and states. This CCAC-supported report focuses on the winter season in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, as the winter season experiences the worst pollution episodes and these areas suffer adversely from air pollution. The strategic thinking is that if winter pollution can drastically reduced, the problem can be effectively solved for the entire year. This is a self-organized task force report for the World Sustainable Development Summit, New Delhi, October 6, 2016.
