Kevin Cromar Awarded $2.3 Million

to Incorporate Air Quality Impacts in Social Cost of Carbon Economic


Increased exposure to outdoor air pollution is one of the greatest health risks from climate change. However, air-quality threats are not included in economic models and policy tools used to assess prospective climate policies. Director of Health, Environment, and Policy, Kevin Cromar, has received a $2.3 million grant from Wellcome, a London-based, global charitable foundation, to address this problem. Along with David Anthoff (University of California, Berkeley), Susan Anenberg (George Washington University) and Brian Prest (Resources for the Future), Cromar aims to improve climate-mitigation policymaking in the United States and Europe by incorporating air-quality impacts into economic models that estimate the social cost of greenhouse gases.
