China is notorious for its excess air pollution.
Even conservative estimates of the economic costs associated with excess particulate matter (PM10) pollution range 4-6% of China’s historic gross domestic product (GDP), depending on time periods.
Research Questions in This Project:
Develop an integrated pollution-health effects assessment tool that reflects China’s cross-provincial heterogeneity.
Apply the tool to the analysis of multiple policy scenarios and answer the questions.
