The SDRN highlights recent research and publications on sustainable cities: cities leading green economies, carbon emissions, urban air quality, adaptation to climate change, future cities.
Air quality is of great importance to us all, yet addressing it can be seen to be a barrier to development. Hard choices and changes to our behaviour are needed to reduce air pollution and its impact on public health and the environment.
Taking action to reduce the effects of climate change can deliver benefits to both air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. A closer integration of air quality and climate change policies will achieve substantial and cost-effective additional benefits, particularly in public health.
