“Every year approximately 7.7 million people die from the effects of air pollution, a poisonous problem that damages health and costs the global economy an estimated $225 billion annually. Measuring, analysing, understanding, and reducing the levels of air pollution in our cities can make a real difference not only to people’s quality of life, but also to how long people live.  

The AXA Research Fund, in partnership with National Geographic have created a series of films looking at how AXA supported researchers are using their research to help to understand the impacts that natural and human-made hazards have on cities and how the data can help build resilient cities. “
