About the product

Urban air quality is increasingly being recognized as a major public health and environmental issue in both developed and developing nations. This review provides policy-relevant information and raises awareness of innovative and effective local air quality management strategies which could be adapted and adopted by a wide range of countries with cities of similar size. It gives a global perspective of city air quality management capabilities based on case studies of twenty cities, each with a projected population of between 3 and 10 million by the year 2000.
