American Public Health Association (APHA) is building understanding and awareness of the public health implications of climate change. Those include worsened air quality, changes in the spread of vector-borne diseases and devastation to communities due to extreme weather events like floods and coastal storms. We need strong climate change strategies and interventions that protect people's health.
Global Alert is one of the world's first global environmental problem-solving platforms that enables international focus on the same issue: trash pollution in our waters. Standardized reporting lets us compare across regions, while also empowering communities to harness it for their own solutions.
ICAO has developed a methodology to calculate the carbon dioxide emissions from air travel for use in offset programmes.The ICAO Carbon Emissions Calculator allows passengers to estimate the emissions attributed to their air travel. It is simple to use and requires only a limited amount of information from the user. The methodology applies the best publicly available industry data to account for various factors such as aircraft types, route specific data, passenger load factors and cargo carried.
