The workshop aims to sensitise media professionals on the science of air pollution, its sources, key solutions, and health impacts.

Air pollution has emerged as one of the biggest challenges in India and across the world posing serious threats to human health, economy, and the overall ecological balance. In order to combat this challenge, the Government of India launched a flagship programme called National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) to address the issue at both national and regional level. The SDC launched the Clean Air Project (CAP) India to support the country's efforts in improving the air quality at the regional level while contributing to environment and climate change mitigation.
