Fuel Economy included in Sri Lanka’s Clean Air 2025 plan
The Global Fuel Economy Initiative is supporting Sri Lanka to assess the fuel economy of its vehicle fleet and develop new policy measures.
At the 6th National Symposium on Air Quality Management in Colombo, Sri Lanka, on May 5th 2016, President Maithripala was presented with a copy of Sri Lanka’s new Clean Air Action Plan 2025, which includes proposals for vehicle fuel economy labelling and fiscal incentives.
GFEI through UNEP, in partnership with the Sustainable Energy Authority, Clean Air Sri Lanka, and Clean Air Asia will support the development of the fuel economy labelling scheme for the country, and the review of fiscal policies and development of more progressive fiscal policies for energy efficient vehicles in Sri Lanka.
The Clean Air 2025 Action Plan provides the roadmap for Air Quality Management in Sri Lanka with specific objectives, strategies, actions, timeframes and key performance indicators. The symposium was jointly organized by the Ministry of Mahaweli Development & Environment, Air Resource Management Center and the University of Moratuwa.
