  2. AQA: Parliamentary Campaign to implement Clean Air SDGs and the Paris Agreement  Air Pollution is an accelerator of Climate Change; the same carbon emissions that speed up global warming make air-quality worse. Since Climate Change is hard to measure, Air-Quality monitoring allows policy- makers a measurement of progress or failure in real-time.  AQA, was established in November 2016 to implement the UNSDGs 2030 related to clean air and the Paris Agreement. AQA convenes parliamentarians, government officials, UN and development agencies, green finance and NGOs working on different segments of Air-Quality with initial focus on Asia, the region with the rising carbon emissions due to growing economies.  “Right to Clean Air” proposed at IPU meeting November 2013 by Parliamentary Working Group on Clean Air, clean air language negotiated in SDGs 2030 with strong targets. These SDGs were adopted by all governments September 2015.
