A Modelling Study on PM 2.5-Related Health Impacts from Climate Change and Air Pollution Emission Control – China, 2010s and 2040s

2021-06-04

What is already known about this topic?

Climate change and air pollution are two important environmental issues in China. It is important to investigate particulate matter with aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 μm (PM2.5)-related health impacts from climate change and air pollution emission control. What is added by this report?

Deaths and years of life lost related to PM2.5 would increase in climate change scenario, although emission control would outweigh the influence of climate change.

What are the implications for public health practice?

More targeted actions should be taken to meet challenges of exacerbated PM2.5 pollutions and its health impacts related to climate change in the future.
