The Institute, together with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS-IAP), China and CSIR-National Physical Laboratory (CSIR-NPL) and IAAPC Delhi Chapter, India jointly organized Indo-China workshop 2019 on "Trends of Air Pollution and Strategies for its Mitigation in Asian Megacities" on 9 January 2019 at CSIR-NPL, New Delhi, India. Scientists from China and India discussed the research and control measures to mitigate the air pollution in China as well as the increasingly severe air pollution over India at domestic to regional scale. It is agreed that makeup collaborations between China and India at institutional level shall be established and strenthened against air pollution. 

Prof. P. Q. Fu and Prof. C. M. Pavuluri from ISESS gave academic reports entitled "Organic aerosols in the urban, rural and remote marine atmosphere" and "Characteristics and sources of atmospheric aerosols in Asia: Case studies from India, Japan and China", respectively. They introduced the importance of organic aerosols (OA) in terms of air pollution and climate change and described the characteristics and distributions of OA at different localities in urban, rural and marine atmospheres. They emphasized the similarities in air pollution between China and India, and talked about the progress made in improving the air quality over China in recent years.
