September 7 – 2020
First Ever International Day of Clean Air for Blue Skies


 

 

“The first celebration of the ‘International Day of Clean Air for Blue Skies on the 7th of September 2020 ‘ will set a precedent for an important and exciting new international day for clean air to be celebrated annually. The observance of this Day is open to the UN member states, UN organisations, international as well as regional organisations and the civil society.

Given the current backdrop with the wide-scale transmission of COVID-19, the Day assumes an important role in propagating the urgent need to address air pollution and the challenges it poses while adding emphasis on moving toward sustainability at an individual, national as well as global level ” . The theme for the Day is set as  ‘ #CleanAirForAll‘ .

  • UNGA 74th Session – December 19th Resolution to hold the first ever International Day of Clean Air for Blue Skies on the 7th of September 2020
  • The UNEP and The Climate and Clean Air Coalition Joint Advocacy

Aims of the Day

  • Raise the public awareness of #CleanAirForAll and its impacts on #Productivity, #Health, #QualityofLife , #Ecosystems at all levels
  • Demonstrate the #AirQualityLinkages with #SDGs
  • Promote and Facilitate actionable #Knowledge, #BestPractices, #Innovations and Success Stories of  #AirQuality  Solutions
  • Promote #MultiStakeholder approaches at  various levels for  effective air quality management

FrontierTech4AirPollutionMonitoring : Near Term


4 Innovative Startups in Global Action
  • PlanetWatch : World’s first air quality immutable ledger on Algorand
  • MXC Foundation : PDP – Particle Depletion Program (based on MXProtocol innovation ) rewarding global air pollution reduction efforts to reward actions through  USD 12 million in pledges via MXC purpose built blockchain foundation
  • Breeze Technologies : Uses a combine of BigData – IoT Sensors – Analytics to render hyperlocal air quality data and metrics to help support  multiple stakeholders efforts in combating air pollution
  • 3WM : Global Industrial Circular Economy led Project to  Combat  Soil  -Water –Air Pollution  through a network of  10 Ecotech centers and green intelligence network  powered by the 3WM payment token

 

 

FrontierTech Map & Enable 25 #CleanAir Actions : Mid – Long Term


  • Air Pollution in Asia and the Pacific: Science-based Solutions identifies 25 clean air measures that can help 1 billion people breathe clean air by 2030 and reduce global warming by a third of degree Celsius by 2050 , recover better, generate business opportunities, spur SDGs fulfilling socio-economic development
  • Air Quality Improvement strategies range from managing agricultural crop residues to HFC refrigerants replacement
  • Key among them (improved public transport, RE power generation, solid waste management , international shipping , clean cooking and heating )are well underway in  enabling #FrontierTech application across several glocal projects

 

FrontierTech Enable & Adapt Nature Based Solutions Standard Actions : Mid – Long Term

  • On the 23  July  2020, IUCN launched the first ever  global standard for ‘Nature Based Solutions’  in  a high level virtual event. The Standard is said to be a product of  rigorous consultation with a cross section of stakeholders spanning 100 countries
  • The Global Standard for Nature-based Solutions enables everyone to consistently and reliably design, verify and scale-up NbS. According to the IUCN NbS Group’
  • When on the ground NbS project activities are uniquely tagged , registered to say  a NbS global registry , the project certified to the NbS Standard, the  concomitant  quantified impact  presents potential to be converted to ‘ NbS  Block Credits’  which could then be traded on the Green DEX
  • The MUAC – EU Funded Project : Modules for Urban Air Cleaning  – is one  example in the suggested direction
