Transportation Situation and Traffic Air Pollution Status in Shanghai

Abstract This paper reports the findings of the first phase of a two-year Shanghai Academy of Environmental Sciences (SAES) study seeking to (1) quantify the environmental and public health benefits of various vehicle emissions control policy options and (2) develop a system of sustainable transport and environmental indicators to help Shanghai develop transportation development plans. In this first phase of work, SAES created an emissions profile for vehicles in Shanghai, analyzed the spatial and temporal distribution of vehicle emissions throughout the city, and calculated the public health impact of these emissions.
