Around 271 million citizens now live in places which are signed up to the BreatheLife campaign to bring air quality to safe standards by 2030.

Nine new governments added their names to the initiative yesterday, World Environment Day, which is being led by the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Environment, World Bank and the Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). With 90% of people worldwide exposed to air pollution that exceeds WHO levels, these commitments are critical.

There are now 63 cities, regions and countries on board with BreatheLife, after the latest additions: Bogota (Colombia), Lalitpur and Kathmandu (Nepal), Honduras, Bogor City (Indonesia), the Republic of Moldova, Monaco, Montevideo (Uruguay) and Mexico.
