EDF and the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Office of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) have launched a new partnership to build clean air solutions in 33 Latin American and Caribbean countries over the next four years.
This collaboration aims to leapfrog barriers to advancing clean air in the region, which is home to more than 650 million people. Through cutting edge technologies, data analytics and deep partnerships across the region, we’re working to improve public health and reduce climate pollution to build a vital earth for everyone.
International Clean Air Workshop - Bogotá, Colombia
EDF and UNEP co-hosted an international clean air workshop in October 2022 in Bogotá, Colombia in support of the work of the Regional Intergovernmental Network on Air Pollution for Latin America and the Caribbean.
Attendees included air quality managers and professionals from across the region, global funding institutions and scientists working toward the common goal of improving air quality to protect public health and reduce climate pollution.
The workshop provided resources on state-of-the-art air quality management strategies, including opportunities to adopt emerging practices into clean air and climate plans. Video recordings are available for sessions on air quality management and public health priorities, technology innovation in clean air solutions, and mainstreaming technology and other innovations.
