The ISSRC (International Sustainable Systems Research Center) works to identifying approaches and technologies to support environmentally sustainable economic growth. Since 2006, they have provided technical support to Hewlett grantees in the San Joaquin Valley. Their reports and training contributed significantly to advocates success in pushing air regulators to adopt stronger-than-expected air pollution reduction plans that will mitigate harmful air pollution in the Central Valley - one of the nation's worst air basins. To assist in the continual education, advocacy and and tracking of the implementation of key regulations, an information resource designed specifically for the environmental groups is proposed. This will be a secure on?line resource where with a few clicks, advocates can access straightforward, up?to?date information on various topics on San Joaquin's air quality and the key issues that impede the process of attaining clean airm, stated in a way that is understandable to the public advocates. This furthers the Hewlett Foundations goal of strengthening the capacity of air quality advocates serving disproportionately affected communities. (Supplemental, $50,000/1; 100 % of project budget)

Grants to this Grantee
for the International Air Quality Management Improvement Project
The International Sustainable Systems Research Center is an organization dedicated to improving air quality management in large cities in developing countries. The focus of this grant is to increase the provision of information about the sources of, and solutions to, air quality problems to policymakers in key cities in Mexico and China. With their customized models, such as the International Vehicle Emissions Model, the organization will support the implementation of air quality management plans with the goal of reducing particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide pollution from transportation sources in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Chongqing, and Shanghai.
