Description

Guests in this episode:

James Irlam (PHASA)

Thandile Chinyavanhu (Greenpeace Africa)

Thomas Mnguni (groundWork)



With three exciting and considered guests and hosted by SECTION27, this episode is in conversation about the impact of climate change on health, honing in on the consequences of poor quality air on population morbidity and mortality. The association between the quality of an individual’s environment and their health is a well-documented concern articulated by experts on climate change and advocates for climate justice.



Research extensively points to air pollution as a health hazard. Over time, as air quality standards have dropped due to uncontrolled pollution and harmful environmental practices, the morbidity rate of populations living in unclean environments has worsened.



This episode offers a robust and dynamic conversation on the case of air pollution in South Africa.
