Adjusted savings: particulate emission damage (% of GNI)
Particulate emissions damage is the damage due to exposure of a country's population to ambient concentrations of particulates measuring less than 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5). Damages are calculated as productivity losses in the workforce due to premature death and illness.
