Household Air Pollution

When you think of pollution, you may be imagining large-scale causes such as factories, power plants, and all kinds of pollutants. However, even small-scale pollution can be harmful, especially when it comes from your own home.

There is no doubt that individuals should be concerned about these things, but it is more important that governments make sure their citizens have access to clean-burning fuel supplies and well-ventilated housing. Unfortunately, this is not a reality for billions of people across the globe even today, and real action is needed!

What you’ll learn about household air pollution:

Change starts at home, yet for billions across the world household air pollution represents a serious threat to their health on a daily basis.

Of course individuals should change harmful habits if they can, but to be able to do that, you need both knowledge of the problem and resources to act on it, which many of these households simply do not have.

It has to be up to governments and local authorities to act and provide resources to ensure their citizens are not suffering in such conditions.
