Improving Air Quality and Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Two Worldwide Challenges

Natasha Simmonds

There are numerous compelling reasons to encourage sustainable development and reduce greenhouse gas and other combustion emissions. Asthma, cardiovascular illness, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and dementia are all linked to combustion emissions in many metropolitan contexts, resulting in many early deaths. Air pollution has a global social cost of at least $3 trillion each year; particles, nitrogen oxides, and ozone linked with combustion emissions are all very expensive pollutants. One of the reasons that countries are working together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Paris Agreement on Climate Change is to improve air quality in urban areas. There are numerous possible advantages to mitigating climate change.
