Abstract
This report has been compiled within the framework of the programme on Regional Air Pollution in Developing Countries (RAPIDC), Phase III, conducted during the period 2005-2008. RAPIDC has been funded by the Department of Infrastructure and Economic Cooperation (INEC) of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). It is coordinated by the Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI) and carried out in collaboration with Swedish Universities and research organisations together with inter-governmental agencies and research organisations in Asia and Africa.

This report has been compiled within the framework of the programme on Regional Air Pollution in Developing Countries (RAPIDC), Phase III, conducted during the period 2005-2008. RAPIDC has been funded by the Department of Infrastructure and Economic Cooperation (INEC) of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). It is coordinated by the Stockholm Environmental Institute (SEI) and carried out in collaboration with Swedish Universities and research organisations together with inter-governmental agencies and research organisations in Asia and Africa.

This report has been principally produced for eight countries – Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka – that are signatories to the Malé Declaration on Control and Prevention of Air Pollution and Its Likely Transboundary Effects for South Asia. The Malé Declaration developed from the policy dialogue held in 1998 under the auspices of UNEP as part of the RAPIDC programme. This report is produced in response to the Malé Activity 5.2.1 Impacts in the Housing Sector.

The report gives an overview of the existing techniques and technologies in the housing sector for reduction of air pollution. As a result of the relatively pollution intensive nature of energy production in the region, and as other areas such as the production of building materials (e.g. cement production) are addressed by other resource documents, this document is mainly focused upon energy consumption. The different sections of this report describe technologies and techniques for the lower emission lifecycle building envelopes (including insulation issues, windows, roofs and walls, etc.) and other building support systems such as cooling, ventilation, heating, water heating, cooking and lighting. The report seeks to give examples from Malé countries or from countries with similar climatic conditions to the extent possible. (Less)
