African Centre for Clean Air

Who We Are

ACCA established and runs a resource centre on air quality that conducts, measures and disseminates air quality research/data. We further support African governments to develop and implement evidence based air quality policies and programmes.

The African Centre for Clean Air (ACCA) is a research and policy centre, which employs a multidisciplinary approach to working in collaboration with multiple international, regional and local partners to develop African-based capacity to tackle the causes of air pollution, foster advocacy skills, and provide evidence for policy changes to protect health.

The centre provides a platform for engaging Governments and other stakeholders to address the air pollution problem through effective air quality monitoring and using evidence based data to guide on behavioural and policy change through training, guidelines and national action plans.
