IUAPPA

Air pollution causes over 800,000 deaths and tens of millions of respiratory and other illnesses each year. It damages ecosystems and affects quality of life, reduces economic activity and reinforces the cycle of poverty in many areas of the world. It does not respect national boundaries. Many pollutants are transported long distances from one country or one hemisphere to another. Some are even transported at global scale. Solutions now require co-operation at all levels - from the local to the global. And these solutions must reflect the linkages between air pollution and other social, economic and environmental issues, as well.

IUAPPA's goal is to help develop and promote such solutions. It brings together governmental and non-governmental organisations from throughout the world to share scientific and technical information to help develop more effective air pollution control policies.

In pursuit of its objectives IUAPPA promotes the World Clean Air Congress and regional meetings, supports technical and policy development in key areas such as the air quality impact of transport in cities, and leads international initiatives - such as the Global Atmospheric Pollution Forum.

The National Association for Clean Air is the prime technical and scientific non-governmental body in the area of air quality management in South Africa. It has more than 500 members divided between companies, consultant firms, local authorities, professionals involved in air quality management, and individuals interested in clean air.
