Kristin Aunan addresses the benefits to human health and/or climate from reducing emission of air pollution

  • Dr.scient. (Chemistry), University of Oslo 1998
  • Cand. scient. (biology), University of Oslo 1987
  • 08/2014–08/2016: Professor II at Dept. of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages (IKOS), UiO
  • 01/2008–12/2015:  Professor II, Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo

Projects

  • Planning for cost-effective environmental risk reduction The project Planning for Cost-Effective Environmental Risk Reduction in China is a major environmental cooperation project carried out by Vista Analysis, Chinese Academy for Environmental Planning (CAEP) and the Norwegian climate research center CICERO on behalf of the Chinese Government.
  • Health effects of Hebei PM2.5 Action Plan As part of the preparation of a World Bank Program-for Results (PforR) operation on PM2.5 pollution in Hebei, the current report provides an economic evaluation of the health benefits that may be achieved from alternative scenarios for PM2.5 reductions in Hebei in 2017 and onwards. We also include a qualitative evaluation of other benefits, e.g., how the program may contribute to abating emissions of CO2 and short-lived climate forcers (SLCF).
  • Airborne CAS Airborne studies human dimensions of air pollution in China in a historical perspective. How do people’s experiences and fears of air pollution transform into new visions of sustainability and creative forms of action?
  • Exhaustion Air pollution is currently the largest environmental killer in Europe, causing 500,000 premature deaths annually. Heatwaves can make air pollution more lethal and cause more heart and lung diseases. Together with Universitetet i Oslo (UiO) the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and 11 other European institutions CICERO will help increase European resilience towards climate change.
  • HEATCOST HEATCOST will quantify health risks attributable to heat and air pollution (with a particular focus on air pollution from wildfires) in main world regions under selected climate scenarios and socioeconomic pathways. 
  • ENBEL: Connecting health and climate change research Climate change is according to the WHO the greatest threat to human health in the 21st century. By bringing together leaders in climate change and health research the CICERO-coordinated Horizon 2020 project ENBEL will contribute with knowledge and policy advice on climate change and health links.
