Clean Air & Renewable Energy
Bangladesh has the worst air pollution in the world, while its capital Dhaka is the second most air-polluted city causing an estimated 13-22% of deaths in this region. Air pollution will cause around seven million premature deaths globally next year and have a major economic impact.
Youth for CARE is an impactful youth that aims to impose policies and regulations governing those sectors in order to improve air quality. The project will also help strengthen the institutional, policy, and regulatory framework for public transport, and help mainstream environmental considerations into general urban transport policy.
Youth are trained to run an advocacy campaign to make the government accountable for its `Net-zero’ commitment, ensuring that the government adopts a more aggressive Renewable Energy Policy.
