Seventy percent of the global health burden caused by air pollution occurs in Asia. Our research aims to understand the causes and impacts of Asian air pollution. We work to help design effective strategies to rapidly improve air quality.
We have shown that air pollution has rapidly changed across China in recent years. Particulate air quality has improved in recent years providing important benefits to public health. Up to half of particulate air pollution in China is related residential heating and the production or consumption of food.
