IBAQ City Solutions Toolkit

The City Solutions Toolkit supports the implementation of the Guidance Framework for Better Air Quality in Asian Cities. The Toolkit covers elements needed for the effective design and successful implementation of clean air action plans including the fundamental components of air quality management: air quality monitoring and standards, emissions inventories, modeling, health and other impact assessment and communicating air quality. Guidance on operationalizing clean air action plans including prioritizing solutions, adopting technologies and financing are also provided.

Clean Air Scorecard Tool (CAST)

The Clean Air Scorecard is an assessment tool that scores a city’s air quality. It provides an objective assessment of a city’s air quality status, management practices, and policies. These key assessment areas are represented by the three indexes of the scorecard: Air Pollution and
Health Index, Clean Air Management Capacity Index, Clean Air Policies
and Actions Index.

Transport Emissions Evaluation Model for Projects (TEEMP)

The Transport Emissions Evaluation Models for Projects (TEEMP) consists of a suite of Excel-based spreadsheet models and methods that can be used to evaluate the greenhouse gas, air pollution and other impacts of many types of transportation projects. The TEEMP tools are sketch models which enable the estimation of emissions in both “project” and “no-project” scenarios and can be used to evaluate the short to long-term impacts of projects.


Ambient air quality standards and air quality monitoring are two important measures vital to the success of an air quality management system. The establishment of standards is an essential tool to help protect public health and the environment....

A quantitative assessment of emissions from air pollution sources is required in taking appropriate action to improve air quality. Emission Inventories or ‘EI’ and Air Quality Models are tools used to determine specific source types and their...

Today, air quality in many Asian cities exceeds the World Health Organization (WHO) guideline limits for the protection of human health. According to WHO, 92% of the world’s population now live in places where air quality levels exceed health...
