BAQ is a 3-day conference. The BAQ format consists of plenary sessions, breakout sessions, country roundtables, poster presentation, exhibits, social events and press conferences and launches.

  • Plenary sessions: There will be an opening session on day 1 with welcome remarks, a keynote address and the Kong Ha Award for Excellence in Air Quality Management; a plenary session on day 2 that highlights the host country/city’s efforts to improve air quality and related areas of climate change, energy and transport; and a closing session on day 3.
  • Breakout sessions: Six parallel sessions on specific topics, including
    Sustainable Cities and Urban Development; Air Quality and GHG Monitoring and Impacts (covering all sources); Air Quality Management & Climate Change Mitigation (covering all sources); Transport Systems and Modes; and Clean Fuels and Vehicles.
  • Country Roundtables: participants use Country Roundtables to discuss the specific challenges that different developing Asian countries face. Each roundtable presents achievements and challenges, and a panel of country representatives suggests how challenges could be met, followed by often heated debates.
  • Poster session: many of the abstracts submitted for the BAQ conference are presented in the form of posters and are displayed at a central location. Traditionally, a special session is dedicated to poster presentations.
  • Exhibition: the BAQ organizers, private sector sponsors, supporting organizations, and CAI-Asia Country Networks display their activities, products and achievements in exhibition booths at a central location. Country booths showcase country-specific information and projects. Supporting organization booths and private sector booths may showcase relevant projects and technologies.
  • Social events: to provide opportunities for participants to interact: including a welcome reception by CAI-Asia Center on the night before the conference (following the CAI-Asia Partnership Meeting); dinner on day 1 at a special location and traditionally hosted by the host city; and farewell drinks on day 3 at or close to the conference venue in a more relaxed setting.
