Belgium - Particulate emission damage

Adjusted savings: particulate emission damage (current US$)

The latest value for Adjusted savings: particulate emission damage (current US$) in Belgium was 313,274,700 as of 2015. Over the past 25 years, the value for this indicator has fluctuated between 370,004,500 in 2014 and 190,126,200 in 2001.

Definition: Particulate emissions damage is the damage due to exposure of a country's population to ambient concentrations of particulates measuring less than 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5), ambient ozone pollution, and indoor concentrations of PM2.5 in households cooking with solid fuels. Damages are calculated as foregone labor income due to premature death. Estimates of health impacts from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 are for 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015. Data for other years have been extrapolated from trends in mortality rates.

Source: Data on health impacts from exposure to ambient PM2.5 pollution and household air pollution are from the Global Burden of Disease 2015 study. Data are provided by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, Seattle.
