New Delhi: According to the World Health Organization, air pollution is currently becoming a serious problem and more than 7 million people die every year worldwide due to air pollution. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued new guidelines on six major hazardous pollutants and called on all countries to follow them.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued new guidelines on six harmful pollutants: PM 2.5, PM 10, ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide. Guidelines regarding these pollutants were issued in 2005. Now more strict guidelines have been issued. The World Health Organization has clarified that these guidelines are not legally binding on all countries of the world, but will certainly be useful in overcoming the problem of air pollution.
PM 2.5 causes 80% of deaths due to air pollution. Therefore these pollutants are considered the most dangerous. Earlier in 2009, India had issued guidelines regarding these pollutants with reference to the World Health Organization. Now the new guidelines are expected to be ready by 2022 next year. India aims to reduce PM 2.5 levels in the country by 20 to 30 percent by 2024 as compared to 2017.
