Any cost-effective set of policy interventions to improve air quality in a city like Hanoi needs to address emissions from a wide range of sources in many different economic sectors, not only within the city domain, but also in the surrounding provinces. This poses new challenges to environmental management and governance systems, where often necessary communication and coordination channels across-economic sectors and regional administrations are less developed. In addition, the design of effective policy interventions must be informed by scientific information covering a wide range of scientific disciplines, including technology research, economics, atmospheric science, and epidemiology, and by systems thinking that distills relevant information from different disciplines. Traditionally, such integration is less developed in the scientific world, hampering an effective interactions between science and decision makers.
As a new form of collaborative research between IIASA and its National Member Organizations, a collaborative project between IIASA’s AIR and ESM programs and the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) aims to develop the scientific infrastructure for a long-lasting science-policy interface for air quality management in Vietnam. In particular, the project will
