Advancing data-driven solutions for cleaner air, better health and a more stable climate
Our strategy combines sound evidence with political strategy to move from awareness to effective action. Scientists are generating evidence that is striking, but unevenly distributed and disconnected from the narratives that move politics and sustain pressure for action at the local level.
A strong, action-oriented evidence base with specific focus on source awareness is critical to combatting air pollution, as is building coalitions of public, private and civil society organizations. Doing so will make the problem more salient, helping groups see and organize around common causes, directing effort to the right places and allowing courts and regulators to function.
Through source attribution, focused coalition building and root cause analysis with key partners, WRI is generating new scientific findings and creating a practical, field-tested playbook for delivering and sustaining cleaner air.
