Take the recommendations of experts and citizens into consideration for a robust NCAP
Why is this important?
In December 2017, the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MOEFCC) announced the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) in the Rajya Sabha. A broad national level strategy, the aim of the NCAP is to tackle rising air pollution levels across the country. In March, the ministry told the Supreme Court that the initiatives proposed in the NCAP would be finalised within four weeks.
However, the concept note has some glaring gaps -- there's no clarity sectoral targets, no interim deadlines for implementation of the objectives and no mention of community-based monitoring initiatives.
We have until May 17 to tell the union environment ministry to come up with an inclusive, robust NCAP. Sign this petition to send your recommendations.
