This is an article on the paediatric asthma burden attributable to both indoor and outdoor NO2 emissions in China, in the context of SDGs 3, 7, and 11, focusing on the need for effective climate change mitigation policies and clean energy transition.
The methodology in this paper deals with model mis-specification bias as well as bias from endogenous regressors. The authors provide estimates of the inequality-pollution relationship for every country-year observation. They find sustainable environmental policies will lower pollution and inequality in certain country groups. The results from their studies provide a cross-country information portal for sustainable environmental policies.
This chapter focuses on the adverse effects of air pollution on the developing brain and discusses the evidence from human and animal studies suggesting that exposure to elevated air pollution during pre- and early postnatal development is associated with a number of behavioral and biochemical adverse effects.
This is an article on the association of long-term exposure to air pollution with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), in the context of SDGs 3 and 11, focusing on the modification effects of genetic susceptibility and an unfavourable lifestyle on the risk of COPD.
Background: Individuals with COPD have increased sensitivity to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) such as diesel exhaust (DE), but little is known about the acute effects of TRAP on exercise responses in COPD. Research Question: Does exposure before exercise to TRAP (DE titrated to 300 μg/m3 particulate matter
This is an article on the pathogen-specific associations between ambient temperature and enteric infections, in the context of SDGs 3 and 6, focusing specifically on supporting health-care adaptation measures to deal with temperature-sensitive enteropathogens.
This is an article on the relationships between climate and clean-air policies and future health burdens in China, in the context of SDGs 3 and 11, focusing specifically on reducing the human health effects from air pollution.
Map of study areas with changes in annual mean of PM2·5 from 2014 to 2017
This is an article on the associations between long-term exposure to air pollution and cognitive ageing, in the context of SDGs 3 and 11, focusing specifically on the effects of implementing a national clean air policy on ambient concentrations of particulate matter and cognitive function in older adults across China.
In this paper, the authors assess the impact of degrading air quality on modal shares and equivalent CO2 emissions per capita per trip for ten global cities using a scenario-based approach.
Perceived causes for chronic respiratory symptoms
This study supports SDG 3 by examining local beliefs and attitudes towards chronic respiratory disease in four low-resource regions. The findings demonstrate the need to improve respiratory health literacy in these communities, with primary care identified as the most effective setting for delivering these messages while adhering to local norms and social structures, and thus lowering the mortality and morbidity burden due to chronic respiratory illnesses.
