Peshawar Clean Air Alliance


The Peshawar Clean Air Alliance (PCAA) is a 100+ member strong volunteer association of civil society groups and individuals sharing a common vision of air quality for Peshawar.



SEED is supporting this Alliance to build a consensus on lowering the Air Quality Index score substantially and sustainably for the Peshawar district and its surrounding areas. With a vision statement and a draft work plan, the Alliance has collected over 17,000 signatures on an online petition jointly filed by SEED and PCAA. Currently, three high-quality monitors set up by PCAA, are collecting data on air quality in Peshawar.

The SEED Programme and Peshawar Clean Air Alliance (PCAA) signed an MOU with The Bank of Khyber to procure and install air quality monitors on its selected branches throughout Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. These will become part of PCAA’s monitoring network, and the data will be available at
