Geographic area
East Asia & Pacific

Air pollution is one of the biggest threats to children’s well-being in the Asia Pacific region.

UNICEF East Asia Pacific Regional Office and UNEP Regional Office for Asia Pacific have jointly developed this guide to promote 20 child-centred clean air solutions and ultimately help realize children’s fundamental rights to breath clean air and live in a stable climate.

This guide highlights the potential benefits specifically for children from the implementation of child-centered clean air measures. This guide also recommends additional clean air measures that can help reduce air pollution and exposure of children in microenvironments, engaging and empowering children and youth.
