This edition of Reviews on Environmental Health comes in the context of the recent release of a UNICEF Report called Clear the air for children: The impact of air pollution on children, on the effects of air pollution on children around the world (https://www.unicef.org/publications/files/UNICEF_Clear_the_Air_for_Children_30_Oct_2016.pdf).

Abstract

This edition of Reviews on Environmental Health comes in the context of the recent release of a UNICEF Report called Clear the air for children: The impact of air pollution on children, on the effects of air pollution on children around the world (https://www.unicef.org/publications/files/UNICEF_Clear_the_Air_for_Children_30_Oct_2016.pdf). While the Report shows that the worst effects of air pollution on children’s development occur in the developing world, urbanised areas in both developing and developed countries also pose air pollution risks to young children. These urban risks include harmful emissions from factories and traffic, and the UNICEF report identifies the many immediate and long-term risks to children’s development from these pollutants. The worst exposures and most devastating effects are in low-income countries and in southeast Asia, but even high income developed countries, such as Australia, cannot afford to be complacent about the effects of air pollution on young children, particularly in urban areas. In Australian cities, some of the worst pollution is found close to freeways and busy roads. Research has documented the detrimental effects of traffic pollution on the development of children living in homes, or attending schools, close to busy roads. Even in relatively unpolluted Australian cities such as Brisbane and Perth,
