The Global Commission on Pollution + Health is working to call the world’s attention to new evidence that pollution, in all its forms - air, water & soil - is the leading cause of death and disability in the world, taking almost 9 million lives every year. The majority of those deaths and disability, 92% in fact, occur in low and middle-income countries.
These are startling numbers that are hard to comprehend. But your experience and stories, your images and captions, will help transform this data into the many visible facets of human life and health being harmed by pollution.
Crowd-sourced pollution reporting – Be a part of the solution by joining our effort! Document pollution in your community and help grow our database. Drill down to your neighborhood on the map and tell your story and upload your pictures. As hotspots are revealed, the Commission will use its networks validate the site and to visit and officially assess the area. Areas of high concern will be brought to the attention of relevant government officials.
We are also working on a program for residents in low-and- middle-income countries to send soil samples to Commission partners for analysis. Testing results will be documented and shared with relative stakeholders.
Data is power, and evidence leads to solutions. Global participation will lead to global demand to encourage governments to finally control pollution.
