Since the implementation of “the Action Plan”, The estimated national population–weighted annual mean PM2.5 concentrations decreased from 61.8 to 42.0μg/m3, which represents a 32% reduction.
The MEIC group coupled various models to quantify relationship between household consumption and air pollution-related premature deaths
Urban household consumption in China contributed to 20% of China total anthropogenic PM2.5-related mortality in 2012, and were dominated by indirect emissions arising from products consumption. While rural household contributed 24%, dominated by direct emissions from solid fuel combustion.
The MEIC team in Tsinghua University, as the technical supporter, intensively participated in systematic design of the guidelines and also proposed guidelines in details.
