Key Messages

The Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP) has been actively involved in finding solutions to air quality issues across India. The Centre for Air Pollution Studies (CAPS) at CSTEP is currently conducting a long-term study in Punjab to identify air pollution challenges and devise sectoral strategies for reducing air pollution in the state. CAPS is carrying out hybrid measurements and policy analysis for providing solutions to air pollution arising from stubble burning, industries, and transportation. To expedite the identification of interventions and policy measures, CAPS organised a stakeholder engagement event ‘Vision: Clean Skies for Punjab’ on 9 December 2021 at Chandigarh. The event brought together stakeholders from government, industry, civil society, and academia to deliberate on the effectiveness of current policy measures in Punjab for reducing air pollution and suggest a way forward.
