The Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP) at the Asian Institute of Technology assists countries to advance their environment and sustainable development goals through the provision of capacity-building, knowledge sharing, policy advice, and research in three thematic areas: Climate Change, Air and Atmosphere, and Waste Management.

Celebrating three decades of service to Asia and the Pacific, RRC.AP is organizing a series of workshop, seminars, and movie nights among others to raise awareness on the environment. The series which will run from April to September 2019 aims to inspire and provoke conversations between stakeholders on pertinent issues on air pollution, climate change, and waste management which we all face today as individuals and as a society. All activities are absolutely free to the public. We encourage you to bring your friends and colleagues along for the events. More details...
