Urban and Rural Settlements

In many urban locations the general environment is so badly polluted that altogether the health of hundreds of millions of people is adversely affected. Many countries experience high levels of pollution in urban areas from industrial activities, energy production and use, and transport systems, most of which where developed with little or no regard for environmental protection. While there have been notable improvements in most developed countries this has not generally happened in developing countries where the deterioration of environmental conditions in urban fringe areas continues.
