The emissions of greenhouses gases (GHGs) are a universal problem, now and for the foreseeable future. Many countries have already set targets to reduce GHGs in order to achieve the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement. The reduction targets could be set for a country as a whole or for specific sectors. All kinds of policies or technologies have been proposed and developed to achieve the determined goals. The evaluation and the measurement for all mitigation efforts have been conducted. Mitigation co-benefits resulting from all climate actions are as equally important as benefits arisen by GHG emissions reductions. The co-benefits, however, are often ignored when the benefits of GHG emissions reductions are evaluated. Among these, health co-benefits are of the utmost concern and can easily be appreciated by people, depending on their experiences. Monetized health co-benefits are specific, concrete, and essential outcomes to gauge whether allotting mitigation resources is efficient.
This Special Issue welcomes studies related to the evaluation of health co-benefits from all kinds of GHG emissions mitigation actions. The mitigation actions can take place for region, for country as a whole, or for a specific sector, such as agriculture, construction, all types of industries and manufactures, road/aviation transportation, or the energy sector. The evaluation of health co-benefits can be traced to the source of health capital that each country possesses and the impact pathway that air pollutants and damage to health follow. Studies falling under this scope are welcome. Mitigation actions could take place across countries and/or in a prospective time, such as the mid-century (2050), to achieve anticipated outcomes. This Special Issues looks forward to sharing the evaluation of health co-benefits as a result of the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
