Experts say nature-based mitigation strategies and investment in renewables could reduce both indoor and outdoor air pollution and stimulate sustainable and safe growth.
By reviewing 44 studies, researchers make a scientific case for regulating agricultural pollution of streams and rivers by implementing conservation practices, including riparian buffer zones.
Una nueva base de datos revela ciudades más opacas, campos de cultivos vacíos y puertos vacíos.
The Science Panel for the Amazon prepares to launch its first report, the most comprehensive document on the rain forest so far.
Abandoned hardrock mines and climate change cause metals and other elements to leach into streams. They also put rare earth elements into the water, a new study finds.
Widespread remote work may have kept air pollution lower than pre-COVID-19 lockdown levels even though restrictions were lifted in 2020, a new study finds.
Integrated approaches are needed to understand and respond to changes in tropical mountain ecosystems and communities brought about by receding glaciers and changes in land use.
Reducing fires lit for agricultural management and deforestation, which unduly affect poorer populations, could help prevent 59,000 premature deaths per year.
For the first time, a study analyzes Amazon forest loss and recovery at national and subnational levels. One finding shows that new plantings offset less than 10% of emissions associated with deforestation.
Deforestation in the Amazon has dropped since the early 2000s, but it is slowly climbing again. A new study shows the impact of that climb on public health—and how much worse conditions could be.
