In urban areas, health externalities generated by air pollution represent a barrier to the development of a circular and sustainable economic model. Local air quality policies often lack of instruments for the quantification and evaluation of external health costs. Support for decision-makers is needed, in particular during the implementation stage of air quality plans. Modelling tools based on the impact pathway approach can provide such support. In this paper, the implementation of health impacts and externalities analysis in air quality planning is evaluated. The air quality plan of the Piemonte region in Italy is considered. A case study is analyzed to evaluate a plan action, i.e., the development of the district heating system in the city of Turin. The dispersion and externalities model DIDEM are applied to detect the scenario with the highest external cost reduction. View this paper.
