What is EANET?
EANET was established in 2001 as an intergovernmental initiative
to create a common understanding on the state of acid deposition problems in East Asia,
provide useful inputs for decision making at various levels, and promote cooperation among countries.
13 countries in East Asia are participating in EANET at present.
UN Environment Asia Pacific is the Secretariat and the Asia Center for Air Pollution Research (ACAP)
located in Japan is the Network Center for EANET.
What is APCAP?
the Asia Pacific Clean Air Partnership was established in 2015
as a mechanism and platform to promote coordination and
collaboration among various clean air initiatives in Asia Pacific.
Building on this global momentum, much has been achieved in the clean air agenda over the past few years.
The Asia Pacific Clean Air Partnership is now responding to 2017 Resolution 3/8
of the third UN Environment Assembly on ‘Preventing and reducing air pollution to improve air quality globally’.
The Asia Pacific Clean Air Partnership (APCAP) aims to
• Serve as a mechanism for better coordination and collaboration of clean air programs in the region
• Provide a platform to generate and share knowledge on air pollution initiatives, policies
and technologies in the Asia Pacific region
• Strengthen institutional capacity, provide technical assistance on air quality management; and
support air quality assessments to identify solutions for clean air.
