Cleaning Pakistan's air
The extent of urban air pollution in Pakistan—South Asia’s most urbanized country—is among the world’s most severe, significantly damaging human health, quality of life, and the economy and environment of Pakistan. The harm from Pakistan’s urban air pollution is among the highest in South Asia, exceeding several high-profile causes of mortality and morbidity in Pakistan. This book synthesizes a broad spectrum of research on Pakistan’s air quality management (AQM) challenges. The research analyzed here deals with the severity and scope of air pollution in Pakistan, considers the experiences of other countries with AQM programs, and identifies a comprehensive set of steps to improve Pakistan’s air quality.
