This manual is a formulation of methods and assessment of good practice related to the development of effective policies and programmes to protect public health and the environment from the harmful effects of atmospheric pollution.
The project, co-funded by BOC foundation, U.S. Environment Protection Agency and Sida (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency), produced a report which summarizesd the results of a study comparing existing international emissions inventory approaches with that of the Malé Declaration manual. Those features appropriate for countries with less developed capacity in inventory compilation were identified and recommendations presented for incorporated them into a Global Atmospheric Pollution Forum (the "Forum") Manual and Excel Workbook.
The manual and Workbook can be downloaded from the GAP Forum Website.
The manual is part of the Global Atmospheric Pollution Forum (GAP Forum). The aim of this forum is to:
- support the development of solutions to air pollution-related problems by promoting effective cooperation among nations at the regional, hemispheric and global scales.
- pursue flexible approaches that can also address climate change and other related concerns.
- support nations in their efforts to find cost-effective solutions that promote economic development and help alleviate poverty.
