When considering the results in more detail, the analysis also indicates that the effectiveness of European air quality policies with respect to health impacts from ABT-538 may be hampered if no ambitious climate policies – as described in the RCPs – were adopted at an international scale. As shown in Colette et al. (2013a), intercontinental transport of air pollution and climate change increase ozone and thus ozone related health effects between 2005 and 2050 under the reference scenario. Ambitious international climate policies and increased efforts to reduce air pollution in other world regions are thus crucial to reduce health effects from ozone in Europe.
