World premature deaths due to urban pollution from particulate matter and ground-level ozone

Figure Created 30 Oct 2014 Published 28 Feb 2015 Last modified 28 Feb 2015, 02:51 PM
The figure shows the projected premature deaths due to particulate matter and ground-level ozone. The OECD’s forecasts are based on modelling and thus depend on a range of assumptions about current and future air pollution and its interaction with other determinants of health, including the potential gains from air and climate policies. The forecasts consider only urban population and include the projected ageing of populations in the coming decades. BRIICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China, South Africa
