About the Brick Initiative

The Brick Initiative, housed under ICIMOD’s Atmosphere Regional Programme, consists of two initiatives undertaken with partners. Currently, ICIMOD is the lead partner for the CCAC Brick Production Initiative and a lead implementer of the Clean Brick Initiative of the Department for International Development (DFID) in Nepal.

ICIMOD’s Brick Initiative aims to improve local and regional air quality standards, help ensure economic benefits for communities, and help reduce adverse impacts on health by improving regional and international coordination and information sharing.
