Transport affects everyone, every day. The Transport sector is a major contributor to air pollution and climate emissions, impact set to increase with an expected tripling of the global car fleet. UNEP’s work is aimed at decoupling increased mobility from increased emissions. UNEP is a partner in several leading global transport programs in areas such as fuel economy, small particulate pollution and infrastructure development, implemented through public-private partnerships.

Paraguay Adopts Air Quality Standards
July 2015

In June, 2014, the National Congress of Paraguay adopted the Clear Air Law (N°5.211) which started a series of actions that aim to combat the deteriorated air quality, especially in Asuncion. A year later, on the 3rd of July, 2015, the Directorate-General of Air (DGA) of the Secretariat of Environment (SEAM) published the Air Quality Permissible Standards (Res. N°259/15), for the maximum concentrations of SO2, NO2, CO, O3 and PM.

Additionally, the DGA is working on the development of Emission Standards for mobile and industrial sources, which should be published within the next months. The Partnership of Clean Fuels and Vehicles (PCFV), through the collaboration of UNEP and the Mario Molina Center Chile (CMMCh) have supported the government of Paraguay through the process.
