Second Country Media Briefing on challenge of urban air quality and mobility management
CSE organised its Second Country Media Briefing on “challenge of urban air quality and mobility management” in Colombo on April 27,2011, as a part of the South Asian Workshops series.
All South Asian Cities are suffering from vehicular pollution and mobility issues; Colombo is no exception. This media briefing was organised to enter in a dialogue and join hands to find a way towards better air quality standards and improved mobility management.
The half a day workshop was attended by about seventeen media personnels, both from electronic and print media, in both English and Singhalese.
Across India, growing volumes of vehicles on city roads are turning the dream of urban mobility into a nightmare: traffic conditions are deteriorating, air pollution is hitting the peak, cities are grinding to a halt, and thousands are dying from air pollution-induced diseases.
