Concentrations of most air pollutants are higher in urban areas than in the surrounding rural regions, and given the high population densities, it is within urban areas that the majority of the population receive their air pollutant exposure.

This book presents a broad overview of the key issues in modern environmental economics with a focus on understanding and solving urban pollution challenges in developed and developing nations.

This book explores how cities and nations can achieve the "win-win" of economic growth and reduced urban pollution/5(15).

The problem manifests itself in a number of ways, notably inadequate infrastructural development, a rapid increase in motor vehicles, and conflicts over urban land use and between public and private transport.

Results also showed that the concentration of PM in the summer and winter (a daily average of 60 to 80 µg/m 3) was higher than the national air quality standard in the United States (65 µg/m 3).

In order to encourage the shift of polluting industries from congested urban areas, capital gains made in moving from urban to other areas are exempt from taxes if these are used for.

Urban pollution may also affect both surface waters as well as groundwater particularly where on site sanitation systems are used.

Effluent from waste water treatment plants may also contain pollutants from industries which discharge their waste to the sewers. We have defined ‘urban pollution’ as the impacts from all 4 of these waste streams. Road traffi c noise is the main source of noise pollution.
