In Peru, the Clean Air Regional Program (PRAL) seeks that the organizations in charge of the air quality management, in Arequipa and Cusco, implement, through sustainable and replicable models, the objectives of the "To Clean the Air" program in the Peruvian national, regional and local environmental management framework.

The Municipality of Cuenca carries out an improvement in the traditional brick kilns and soon, the traditional artisans and brick makers will be visiting Chambo to look at the eficiency and operation of the Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln (VSBK)
