Improving air quality in cities through transport-focused low- and zero-emission zones: legal pathways and opportunities for India

This study identifies and discusses legal pathways for implementing low-emission zones (LEZs) and zero-emission zones (ZEZs) in India at the national, state, and city levels. The authors partnered with an environmental law expert to identify relevant provisions in Indian law to build the legal pathways, and each of the five primary pathways presented can be applied as a mandate.
