In the first podcast from EfD Colombia, Jorge Alexander Bonilla talks about air pollution problem in cities, the policies that deal with air pollution and congestion problems, and in the case of Bogotá, how the driving restriction "pico y placa" affects air quality and congestion.
The title of the podcast is “Policy challenges to reduce air pollution and congestion”. You can hear this podcast in Spanish and English in the soundcloud site of the Economics Department at Universidad de Los Andes here.
EfD in Colombia has started to produce podcasts in which a journalist interviews an EfD researcher about his/ her research results and policy recommendations.
The journalist Carolina García , who did the interview, also published a column (in Spanish) in the Colombian daily newspaper El Espectador about the results and policy recommendations from this research.
