The Clean Air Initiative Strategy For Latin American And Caribbean Cities 2007-2012

The Strategy identifies an approach, key elements, priority areas, and financing opportunities, which together provide a framework for advancing improvements in local air quality in Latin America and the Caribbean and reducing risks from global climate change. The Strategy is intended to evolve as new information emerges, projects are implemented and other issues arise. The Strategy also identifies mechanisms to aid the implementation of CAI-LAC efforts. Combined with other services and resources provided by the Clean Air Institute (Institute), which manages the partnership, these implementing mechanisms will help build financial, technical, and political support and capacity for CAI-LAC projects, as well as promote information sharing and facilitate coordination and communication across efforts.
