Seminario “Air pollution and perception-based averting behaviour in the Jinchuan mining Area, China. A structural equation modeling (SEM) approach”

Presenta: Henk Folmer (Groningen University) Lugar y hora: Miércoles 15 de Noviembre de 2017, 13:00 hrs. Sala P 301, Edificio Placa (Diagonal Paraguay 257)
Abstract
We present a simultaneous equations, perception-based averting behaviour model of health risks caused by air pollution, with application to the Jinchuan mining area, China. Three types of averting behaviour and two types of perceived health risk are distinguished. The estimations show that the total willingness to pay for air quality improvement is 5.6% of net annual household income. Hence, air quality improving investments would substantially decrease health risk averting cost. For the short and medium run daily disclosure of air quality and risk protection measures would be appropriate policy handles.
