World Bank Group’s Pollution Management and Environmental Health (PMEH) Multi-Donor Trust Fund
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
Environmental pollution and health risks for humans are interlinked, as are the solutions for the problems. This is shown by the World Bank’s Pollution Management and Environmental Health programme (PMEH), which reduces the impact of air, soil and water pollution on human health and the environment in the target low and middle-income countries. Particular support is given to the enhancement of air quality management, which improves local environmental and health conditions in cities with high levels of air pollution. The PMEH also helps to identify and exploit the synergies between plans in order to improve environmental protection and reduce greenhouse gases. One example of this is the reduction of climate-damaging methane emissions from landfills. Besides technical support, the project also focuses on strengthening South-South cooperation for the reduction of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
