Health impacts

Despite the adoption of more stringent vehicle emission regulations, the transport sector remains a significant contributor to global illness and deaths from air pollution. The burden is concentrated in China, South Asia, Europe, and North America, which together account for three-quarters of premature deaths worldwide related to transport pollution. Benefiting public health is a founding mission of the ICCT, and our Clean Air Program focuses on identifying policies and strategies to address it.
