The pandemic has provided many parts of the planet a reprieve from the worst effects of pollution, demonstrating that the problem has solutions and is at least partially reversible. It has also served as a potent reminder that burning of fossil fuels is no longer feasible because the severe consequences and alternative measures are imperative for the survival of our planet.

An international panel of experts, in conversation with Anumita Roychowdhury of the Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi, looks at the human cost of air pollution, be it natural or man-made, and the possibility of change. They look at solutions for clean air, and discuss the potential for innovative political, economic and social reform, all of which need to be addressed to make a credible impact on emissions and the quality and value of human life.

This event is presented in association with the Jaipur Literature Festival.
