Air pollution has a far-reaching effect on the whole world. The same effect is having in our country. According to the survey, the average life expectancy of the people of Bangladesh has decreased by about three years. Air pollution in neighboring India, Myanmar, and Bhutan is better than in Bangladesh.



This information has come up in a study titled ‘World Air Condition-2020: How Air Pollution Affects Human Lifetime Around the World’.

The study was conducted jointly by the US Health Effects Institute and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. Nepal has the lowest average life expectancy in air pollution among South and East Asian countries, which is 3.05 years.

Based on a survey by two US agencies, the report found that two African countries – Papua New Guinea and Niger – were among the most affected by air pollution.

The average life expectancy in the two countries has decreased to 3.2 years and 3.1 years, respectively. Information on global air quality in 2019 is the main essence of this report.

According to reports, the average life expectancy in Bangladesh has decreased by 2.91 years due to air pollution. The average life expectancy reduces by 1.16 years due to external air pollution and 1.53 years due to internal air pollution.

According to the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS), the current average life expectancy in the country is 72.6 years. Around the world, air pollution has reduced the average life expectancy. According to the research report, the world’s average life expectancy has decreased by one year and eight months due to air pollution.



South Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Oceania have the highest average life expectancy due to air pollution. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), air pollution kills at least 7 million people worldwide. The average life expectancy of Chinese people has decreased by 1.85 years due to air pollution.

In Bhutan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Myanmar, life expectancy decreased by 2.09, 2.83, 2.66, and 2.61, respectively.

The study found that smoking reduced life expectancy as much as air pollution. It also says that the least developed countries globally have the most significant impact of air pollution on life expectancy.
