Improving Global Public Health through Actions on Energy, Air Quality, and Climate
Chairs: Michal Krzyzanowski, Imperial College London, UK, and Caradee Wright, South African Medical Research Council, South Africa

Policies addressing energy access and use and improvement of air quality bring both climate and public health benefits. Globally, the use of solid fuels, such as biomass and coal, in the residential sector accounts for nearly 20% of emissions of fine particles and more than 700,000 deaths, with the largest burden in low- and middle-income countries. In addition, the use of wood or pellets, promoted as a renewable and affordable energy source, is becoming an important source of pollution in many cities, especially in high-income countries. This session will bring together a variety of global perspectives on the relationships between household energy, air quality, climate, and health, and will explore pathways used by various regions to address the issues surrounding household energy use.
