New UNICEF report – Clear the air for children

The new UNICEF report (October 2016) addresses the last and very concerning numbers about children and the air quality in the world. Overall,

  • Around 2 billion children live in areas where outdoor air quality exceeds international limits
  • 300 million children live in areas with pollution above 6 times international limits
  • In Europe, between 20 and 120 million are living in areas where outdoor air quality exceeds up to 2 times international limits

 

This is a very good document, well written and easy to read. More information here: https://www.unicef.org/publications/index_92957.html
