In Nov 2018, the Forum on Health, Environment and Development (FORHEAD) released its report Air Pollution in China: an Interdisciplinary Perspective. It provides an analysis of the current state of air pollution in China, the drivers and sources of pollutants, the scientific challenge in understanding air pollution and its health effects, and an assessment of recent policies and governance challenges. The report combines scientific research results with multi-layer policy evaluation and offers an in depth case study of air pollution in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and policies to address it. It notes the impressive achievements that have been made in tackling air pollution in recent years, but argues that more detailed analysis is needed of the different costs and benefits associated with various policy measures and distributional effects.
The report is available for download on the FORHEAD website
