Unequal exposure and unequal impacts: social vulnerability to air pollution, noise and extreme temperatures in Europe

Source(s):  European Environment Agency (EEA)

This report assesses inequalities in the exposure to and health impacts of selected environmental health hazards (air pollution, noise and extreme temperatures) on European society and discusses how these are addressed in policy and practice.

This report has four main objectives:

  • To assess the links between socio-demographic inequalities and exposure to selected environmental health hazards at various spatial scales in Europe;
  • To draw attention to the differentiated impacts of selected environmental health hazards among different socio-demographic groups;
  • To discuss how the unequal exposure of various socio-demographic groups and the unequal impacts of environmental health hazards on these groups are reflected in current policy and practice;
  • To highlight the knowledge gaps.
