Our first programme, AirQualityAsia focuses on the clean air goals in Asia, the region most affected by air pollution due to rapid economic growth powered by thermal and fossil fuels. Asia's energy transition to renewable energy will also reduce global carbon emissions meeting the Paris goals on climate change.
AQA has released an inspirational anthem for the clean air movement for one of the most polluted hotspots on the planet, South Asia. The anthem, titled Saafhawa, is linked to the UN BreatheLife campaign and reaches out to the wider South Asian citizens through evocative lyrics and music by some of the region’s most celebrated music artists.
COP27 delegates approved Loss & Damage as an agenda item due to successful advocacy by G77. AQA presents our Loss & Damage Financing Mechanism report and recommendations. Let us lead those still investing in carbon towards green investment.
