RG-T2761 : Empirical Analysis of Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation Actions in LAC

Project Status: Implementation

The main objective of this TC is to assist decision makers in the design of climate change mitigation and air pollution policies and programs by providing information regarding: (i) the effect of distributing salient and readily-assessable air pollution information, and (ii) the valuation of health co-benefits of climate change mitigation actions. Through information collected and analyzed from two innovative randomized controlled trials, this TC will contribute to the decision-making process on several dimensions. First, we will be able to determine whether this type of policy is self-sustainable from a cost perspective. Second, we will be able to determine whether air pollution information programs reduce households' exposure to air pollution, and therefore, reduce the health and economic costs of air pollution to households. Third, we will be able to shed light on the optimal type of information to provide in order to induce changes in household behavior. Fourth, by estimating the change in air pollution exposure and its associated health cost, a proxy for climate change health co-benefits will be available.
