IEA's Energy & Air Pollution Roundtable
Clean air is vital for good health. Yet, despite growing recognition, the problem of air pollution and the global health impacts risk intensifying in the decades to come. For the first time, IEA is focusing on this critical topic in Energy and Air Pollution, providing a global outlook for energy and air pollution as well as profiles of key countries. Based on new data for pollutant emissions in 2015 and projections to 2040, the new report proposes a pragmatic and attainable strategy to reconcile the world’s energy requirements with its need for cleaner air. Alongside the multiple benefits to human health, this strategy shows that resolving the world’s air pollution problem can go hand-in-hand with progress towards other environmental and development goals.
Dr. Kamel Ben Naceur, Director of Sustainability, Technology and Outlooks at IEA will present the findings and strategy of this new report, followed by a discussion.
Guy Caruso, Senior Advisor with the CSIS Energy and National Security Program, will moderate.
