Air pollution is a major planetary health risk, with India estimated to have some of the worst levels globally. To inform action at subnational levels in India, we estimated the exposure to air pollution and its impact on deaths, disease burden, and life expectancy in every state of India in 2017.

Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Ganga Lalwani Vs Union of India & Others With News item published in “Indian Express” Authored by Mallica Joshi Titled “All fiddle as crop stubble burns, farmers say solutions out of reach” dated 15/11/2018 regarding mitigation of air pollution caused on account of crop burning in the States of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Air pollution is linked with many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Strategies aiming at the improved air quality interact directly with climate mitigation targets, access to clean energy services, waste management, and other aspects of socio-economic development.

Order of the National Green Tribunal regarding News item published in “Indian Express” Authored by Mallica Joshi Titled “All fiddle as crop stubble burns, farmers say solutions out of reach” dated 30/10/2018 regarding stubble burning in States of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Subhas Datta Vs State of West Bengal & Others dated 18/09/2018 regarding air pollution caused by the method used for road repairing, fire in Dhapa Dumping ground, plying of old vehicles, burning of solid waste and other related issues.

This study examines the expected mitigation of greenhouse gases (GHG) and black carbon (BC) emissions associated to the transition from traditional biomass to clean fuels and clean woodburning cookstoves (CCS) in the Mexican residential sector for the period 2014-2030. We developed a spatial-explicit model at a county-level to understand the GHG trade-offs associated to different spatial-temporal CCS and clean fuels dissemination strategies. A business as usual (BAU) and three alternative scenarios with different targets for CCS and LPG dissemination were constructed.

Children exposed to higher levels of air pollution during the third trimester of their mother's pregnancy face a higher risk of elevated blood pressure in childhood, according to a study.

More than 80% of people living in urban areas that monitor air pollution are exposed to air quality levels that exceed the World Health Organization (WHO) limits. While all regions of the world are affected, populations in low-income cities are the most impacted.
 

Since at least the 1980s, many farmers in northwest India have switched to mechanized combine harvesting to boost efficiency. This harvesting technique leaves abundant crop residue on the fields, which farmers typically burn to prepare their fields for subsequent planting. A key question is to what extent the large quantity of smoke emitted by these fires contributes to the already severe pollution in Delhi and across other parts of the heavily populated Indo-Gangetic Plain located downwind of the fires.

While there have been substantial efforts to quantify the health burden of exposure to PM2.5 from solid fuel use (SFU), the sensitivity of mortality estimates to uncertainties in input parameters has not been quantified. Moreover, previous studies separate mortality from household and ambient air pollution. In this study, we develop a new estimate of mortality attributable to SFU due to the joint exposure from household and ambient PM2.5 pollution and perform a variance‐based sensitivity analysis on mortality attributable to SFU.
