Air Pollution Interventions: Seeking The Intersection Between Climate & Health

 

 

Air Pollution Interventions: Seeking the Intersection Between Climate and Health” is a new report from Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP), AirQualityAsia and The Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society at Boston College. Researchers evaluate 22 practical interventions undertaken to reduce air pollution. While some efforts — namely those that replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources — improve both local health and favorably impact climate change, other, often politically popular programs are of limited value on either front. The report uncovers the overlaps where air pollution intervention will BOTH improve health and also impact climate change.
