According to the World Health Organization - Mauritius: a breath of fresh air

The air quality in Mauritius is one of the best in the world. A study by the World Health Organization, gathering data on air quality of nearly 1,100 cities in 91 countries, Mauritius is ranked second, behind Estonia.

These data, based on measurements taken between 2003 and 2010, are overwhelmingly the years 2008-2009. They were published by World Health Organization (WHO) in order to highlight the need to reduce air pollution. 

In developed countries and those developing, motorized transport, industry, the use of coal for cooking and heating and electricity are the main causes of air pollution. This announcement is good news for Maurice Ile Durable project. 

Maurice does not exceed 20 micrograms per cubic meter limit recommended by WHO. In Washington, an annual average concentration of 18 micrograms per cubic meter was recorded, in Tokyo, she was 23 micrograms, and in Paris, she was 38 micrograms per cubic meter. 

The UN agency estimated that more than two million people who die each year due to inhalation of fine particles in the air, both inside and outside. And in 2008, the number of premature deaths from air pollution in cities is estimated at 1.34 million (as against 1.15 million four years earlier).

The agency believes that to reduce the annual average concentration of PM10 from 70 to 20 micrograms per cubic meter would result in a reduction of 15 percent mortality. The cities of the Great Peninsula, Iran, Pakistan and Mongolia are among those with a level of air pollution the highest in the world.
