Podcasts as a strategy to communicate EfD research results to the general public

EfD Colombia is recording podcasts, in which a journalist interviews an EfD researcher about his/ her research results and policy recommendations.

In the first podcast, journalist Carolina García interviews EfD Colombia Director Jorge Alexander Bonilla about the air pollution problem in the 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.

Journalist Carolina García also published a column (in Spanish) in the colombian daily newspaper El Espectador online about the results and policy recommendations of the EfD Director’s research: https://www.elespectador.com/noticias/medio-ambiente/pico-y-placa-llego-la-hora-de-repensarlo-articulo-804390.

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: https://soundcloud.com/user-14504446/sets/podcasts-sobre-economia
