Forty years of progress in fighting air pollution in the United States and Europe have greatly reduced public health effects and death rates, but air pollution control agencies continue to face challenges. Christopher James spoke at the University of Washington’s School of Public Health about the value of integrated strategies that link energy and environmental policies to improve both public health and air quality in a timely, cost-effective manner. One such approach, RAP’s IMPEAQ process model—integrated multi-pollutant planning for energy and air quality—combines the best aspects of air quality and energy planning processes into a forward-looking, comprehensive plan that effectively utilizes energy efficiency and renewable energy resources to improve air quality.Mr. James also discusses regulatory best practices and offers insight into Mexico’s climate change legislation as an example of how comprehensive governance can effectively implement clean energy policies.
