Atmospheric pollution is considered as a major problem of environmental health. The growing public concerns, evidence from research and increasing scientific knowledge are all driving widespread discussions on air pollution, climate change, and associated health impacts. Many air pollutants and greenhouse gases have common sources and diffuse globally, interact in the atmosphere, and jointly affect ecosystems. Thus, air pollution is also part of climate change. Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to bring together research findings focusing research and development on air pollution control, greenhouse gas mitigation and associated health impacts. Literature review papers in the relevant fields are also welcomed.
