Air Quality

Overview

BECC certifies projects that improve the air quality to reduce the risks of respiratory diseases along the border region.

The majority of the air quality projects certified by BECC to date entail paving roadways to reduce PM10 exposure in densely populated communities, which poses significant risks for asthma and other poor respiratory conditions.

Supported by the experience gained in successfully developing urban mobility infrastructure projects that contribute to improved air quality, BECC continues to develop specific strategies aimed at promoting other emission-reduction infrastructure opportunities.
