Air pollution in mega-cities: A case study of Delhi

Globally air pollution accounts for 7 million annual deaths according to the World Health Organisation. India alone, air pollution causes over a million deaths annually. The reason I’m bringing this up is because air pollution peaks during the post monsoon months in India especially the national capital, New Delhi is in the news every year for this reason. Will this change this time around?

This episode’s guest is someone who I have followed for a long time through his work in the power sector. In the last couple of years he has spent significant time in researching the why, what, how of air pollution in India especially the national capital region of Delhi where he is also based. The poor air quality in Delhi not only affects him but also his young daughter and hence he is extra motivated to have a positive impact through his work in the space. So here is the discussion I had on the podcast episode
