The Trend Toward Smokefree Outdoor Areas

This is one in a series of background papers on challenging issues in smokefree air policy that are not fully addressed by the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) or its guidelines. These issues include how to address smoking in residential and quasi-residential settings, and in outdoor areas where smoking can cause public health, safety, environmental and other harm. This document highlights the actions of governments and institutions to restrict smoking in outdoor areas as new evidence emerges about the damaging effects of smoking on air quality in outdoor places.
