Sulphur dioxide emissions increase most rapidly in a Security First world because little money is invested to reduce emissions. In the other scenarios, especially in Policy First and Sustainability First, the increase of SO2 emissions is less as steps are taken to avoid severe air pollution. In some sub-regions emissions drop below 2002 levels.
