Air Pollution

IEA report on energy and air pollution – implications for India

  1. Current: Less than 1% of India’s population lives in areas that meet World Health Organisation air quality guidelines
  2. Future: If stringent air pollution regulations are in place, this could increase to almost 10% by 2040, as per the International Energy Agency (IEA)
  3. Scenario: Housing over 16% of the world’s population but using only 6% of energy, India’s energy use is bound to rise
  4. India is taking important steps to tackle air pollution with policies that are in place and those that have been announced, but much more can be done
