Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy, Karnataka would like to invite you to attend a panel discussion on “The Right to Breathe- Fixing Bengaluru’s Air” on 11th January 2019 at Bangalore International Centre Domlur. The panel discussion is part of a public engagem.ent series on “Bengaluru Solutions” jointly organized by Vidhi and Citizen Matters in collaboration with Bangalore International Centre.

In 2017, Vidhi published Cleaning Delhi’s Air: Implementation Action Plan, that identified legal and executive pathways to implement already identified solutions to improve Delhi’s air quality. This year, Vidhi Delhi has created a database, ‘Biting the Dust’, to track the monitoring and enforcement action taken by public authorities to track air pollution in the Delhi NCR.

This winter season has shown to many Bengalureans that the quality of city’s air is declining and much needs to be done to improve it. In a recent report published by Climate Trends, it has shown Bengaluru to be most impacted by Vehicular pollution in the country. The report also recognizes the need for better governance and regulations to combat air pollution in the City.

This discussion is an attempt to shed light on the problem and identify solutions on the growing concern surrounding the quality of Bengaluru’s Air.

For the discussion we are pleased to have a diverse panel of Mr Randeep D, IAS & Special Commissioner BBMP, Mr Pawan Mulukutla, Head of City Development Bosch Mobility Solutions and Anjali Saini Member of Whitefield Rising.
