The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Clean Air Asia and the Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Transport Working Group, and EMBARQ of World Resources Institute, in collaboration with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the Philippines (DENR), are jointly organizing this two-day workshop to support continued discussions towards advancing vehicle emission policies in Southeast Asia. This workshop will facilitate this exchange between different government institutions from the ASEAN region.
Day 1 will focus on global and regional overview of vehicle emission standards, and will set up country presentations to allow each ASEAN country representative to share a brief status on the vehicle emission standards in their respective countries.
Day 2 will take the form of a case-study-based learning within the different government institutions wherein the discussions on advancing vehicle emission standards and on lessons learned from implementation challenges are envisaged to contribute to the realization of Philippines’ recent move towards Euro 4/IV vehicle emission standards that takes effect in January 2016.
The workshop aims to identify opportunities and strategies in overcoming of barriers for the successful implementation of vehicle emission standards, and set the basis for sustaining the cooperation between ASEAN countries towards the harmonization of standards.
