Health impacts of air pollution from transportation sources in Delhi

A new study provides a detailed picture of the health impacts attributable to emissions from four transportation subsectors: on-road diesel vehicles, on-road non-diesel vehicles, shipping, and non-road mobile sources such as agricultural and construction equipment. The study, by researchers from the International Council on Clean Transportation, George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, and the University of Colorado Boulder, links state-of-the-art vehicle emissions, air pollution, and epidemiological models to estimate health impacts at the global, regional, national, and local levels in 2010 and 2015.
