Regional Air Quality Management & Co-control of Ozone & Particulate Matters – From Science to Policy: Challenges & Solutions Towards Cleaner Air
City lockdowns have led to a sizable improvement in air quality. And with the easing of COVID-19 pandemic, our social economic and environment conditions would resume to “normal” operations – Air pollution still poses a daily public health threat even though effective measures and stringent air pollution control policies have been promulgated in the jurisdictions that make up the Pearl River Delta region in recent years. Furthermore, elevated ozone levels are greatly affecting the whole region and is posing new threats and challenges to the region, and COVID-19 has brought the world new perspectives on air pollution and public health issues. What have we learned from all these trends and phenomena, and how could we act together to address all these challenges?
The International Symposium on Regional Air Quality Management in Rapidly Developing Economic Regions (RAQM) is a forum series for science-driven and policy-oriented discussion for improving air quality in economic regions. RAQM pursues the most advanced international and up-to-date knowledge in atmospheric environmental science in the context of improving China’s national and regional air quality.
6RAQM – Embarking on a New Milestone for the China National and GBA Clean Air Future
Following the success of the previous five symposiums, 6RAQM aims to foster timely discussions and effective cooperation in order to harness the golden opportunities presented by the GBA Plan. High-level exchanges between scientists, policymakers, environmental experts, and regional and overseas environmental protection stakeholders are expected at 6RAQM. Together, we aim to formulate ambitious programs for the GBA to clean air and improve public health within an aggressive timeline.
