60 percent of actions under Mumbai s clean air plan fall under multiple agencies CEEW Urban Emissions
| Tuesday | 30th June, 2020
Lack of coordination between various government agencies could be a key hurdle in the implementation of Mumbai's clean air action plan, according to a new independent analysis by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) and Urban Emissions.
At the moment, Mumbai's clean air plan lists out 58 measures across 16 different agencies, which means that about 60 per cent of actions fall under multiple agencies, and this could fragment the accountability.
However, the plan fails to highlight any measures to ensure regional coordination even though independent estimates suggest that close to a third of Mumbai's air pollution originates outside city limits."
The analysis also highlights that the clean air plans of all cities in Maharashtra lack a legal mandate for implementation.
According to CEEW-Urban Emissions analysis, only six of Maharashtra's 17 approved city-specific clean air plans, including Mumbai, have a budget outlined for the execution of all the proposed air pollution mitigation activities.
