Air Pollution and Health

Six million people die every year because of poor air quality. This burden falls disproportionally on vulnerable populations, especially women and children living without access to clean household energy, and people in low- and middle-income countries where rapid urbanization has brought increased emissions. We use our expertise to inform policies and influence public discourse around air pollution and its health impacts globally.

The majority of countries simply don’t know how many children are being exposed, or how severe the exposure is. Many are ill-equipped to enforce regulations in consumer products. And, mining industries are politically powerful and exploit perceptions that development needs trump environmental health concerns.
