India’s Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) in collaboration with the Department of Environment, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of Bangladesh, organized an experience sharing dialogue on “Improving quality and performance of natural gas vehicle programme in South Asia” on 20 January 2011 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This is part of a dialogue series initiated by CSE to strengthen and facilitate inter-regional exchange of ideas on key strategies to combat pollution and public health crisis in the region.

The forum proposed initiatives to strengthen gas exploration and import policy to secure supply, gas utilisation policy to rationalise priority areas, gas pricing policy, gas supply infrastructure, emissions and safety inspection of natural gas vehicles and quality control of conversion.
