Air Pollution, Climate and Health (AiPoCH)

Air pollution is the largest single environmental health risk factor and closely related to climate change. Mitigating emissions can thus result in multiple benefits, but such interventions need to be rooted in a robust information and knowledge base. This project will strengthen high-quality climate/air pollution observation systems to increase awareness and evidence to ultimately trigger concrete action benefitting the health sector.
