Kathmandu Implementation Plan: Municipal Actions for Air Quality in the Kathmandu Valley


The USAID-funded Building Healthy Cities Project (BHC) is a 5-year (2017-2022) learning project that is grounded in a systems approach, with a focus on the social and environmental determinants of health, which span areas well beyond the health sector. In Kathmandu, BHC worked with the Department of Environment and 18 municipalities to roll out the Kathmandu Valley Air Quality Management Action Plan (KVAQMAP). The plan has identified strategic areas for local municipalities to implement together with other government, private, and non-government sectors.
