Pre-Events and Post-Events

Pre-events are sessions organized by BAQ 2010 supporting organizations which can take the form of training courses, workshops and roundtable discussions. Various pre-event sessions were held last 8 November (Monday) covering a range of topics related to air quality such as air pollution from power plants, fuel economy of vehicle fleets, public transport, or the co-benefits of climate change and air quality management. BAQ pre-events have had huge attendance by air quality management practitioners, civil society organizations, academic community and policymakers.

Post-event sessions were also held on 12 November (Friday), a day following the main BAQ conference event.

What events can be held?

A pre- or post-event can be a training course, site visit, a workshop that is longer than the 1.5 hour BAQ breakout session, or a meeting. Some events are open (anyone can attend) while others are by invitation only.

General conditions

  • The supporting organization would organize the event, identify participants and cover associated costs.
  • The CAI-Asia Center can provide limited logistics support, such as recommending a venue for the event and promoting the event to BAQ participants. One CAI-Asia Center staff will be assigned as your main contact point.
  • Pre-events on Monday 8 November must be closed by 4 pm, in time for the CAI-Asia Partnership meeting that starts at 4.30 pm at the conference venue.
  • An important criterion in endorsing BAQ 2010 pre- or post-events is the commitment made by organizers that the majority of pre-event participants will also take part in the main BAQ conference held from 9 to 11 November.
