A Price Worth Paying: The Case for Controlling Marine Emissions in the Pearl River Delta

In April 2012, Civic Exchange published a report on reducing vessel emissions in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta. To download the report, click on the link above.

This report represents a joint-effort by Civic Exchange, HKUST’s Atmospheric Research Center and HKU’s School of Public Health. In this report, HKUST laid the foundation by conducting the first ever activity-based inventory of ocean-going vessels’ emissions across the whole Pearl River Delta based on 4 emissions control scenarios. HKU built on this information and made the first ever assessment of the impacts of emissions from ocean-going vessels on the health of the population in each prefecture of the PRD, Hong Kong and Macau.
