The government sponsored the IES project in Brazil to analyze the environmental and public health benefits, of integrated strategies, including mitigation of GHG emissions, to address urban air pollution in the São Paulo metropolitan area (SPMA). Specific objectives identified by the Brazil project team include: -Development and evaluation of integrated strategies to reduce air pollutant emissions and greenhouse gases from the transportation sector including new vehicular technology, modal substitution, vehicle maintenance and inspections programs and introduction of cleaner fuels.-Estimation of emission inventories and emission scenarios for key air pollution precursors and greenhouse gases.-Analysis of the changes in air urban quality that result from the baseline and alternative emissions scenarios. -Analysis and quantification of reductions in the air pollution health effects resulting from the implementation of the integrated environmental strategies for addressing urban air quality and greenhouse gas emissions.-Economic valuation of the anticipated changes in health effects resulting from the integrated air quality improvement scenarios. -Dissemination of results and outcome to local and national domestic policy makers in the air quality and climate change fields as well as international climate change policy community
