"Chapter 13C: Air Pollutant Emissions Database"
by Chepeliev, Maksym

With a major contribution to premature mortality and morbidity levels, ambient air pollutant emission is one of the most severe global health risk factors (Cohen et al. 2017).11 Representation of air pollutant emission flows in global economic models is thus an important element of a consistent assessment of health and environmental policies. Still, while greenhouse gas emissions are usually well represented in many global economic databases and models, air pollutant emission accounts in most cases are not included. In this Chapter we describe the methodology used to produce a
global air pollutant emissions dataset consistent with the GTAP Data Base version 11. The developed air pollutant emission accounts are largely based on the EDGAR database (Monforti Ferrario et al. 2022), include five reference years (2004, 2007, 2011, 2014 and 2017), cover 160 regions and 65 sectors. Emissions are linked to economic activities and three sets of emission sources: consumption (by intermediate and final users), endowment use (land) and output. In addition to the non-land use sources, emissions from land use activities are estimated by land cover type, based
on the volume of burned biomass and emission factors. The emissions database can be readily incorporated in GTAP-based computable general equilibrium models, enabling assessments of a wide range of policy questions, including the health co-benefits from climate mitigation policies.
