A traffic jam in Bogotá, Colombia. Before the pandemic hit, Claudia López Hernández's government declared a general alarm for environmental pollution in the city, where air pollution levels often are more than twice as high as the World Health Organization recommends, contributing to thousands of deaths annually. Now López is pushing for more bikeways to encourage residents to drive less. (Unsplash/Random Institute)
