In this article we critically review the economic literature on the effects of environmental changes on public health, in both the developed and the developing world. Then, we explain how the monetary valuations of these effects can feed back in the construction of economic policy for creating agent-specific incentives for more efficient public health management, which is also equitable and environmentally sustainable. Our exposition is accompanied by a synthesis of the available quantitative empirical results. Every minute, five children in developing countries die from malaria or diarrhoea. Every hour, children die as a result of exposure to indoor smoke from solid fuels. Every day, nearly 1, people in developing cities die as a result of exposure to urban air pollution.
Water pollution occurs when a body of water becomes contaminated, usually by chemicals or microorganisms. Water pollution can cause water to become toxic to humans and the environment. Water is an essential resource for all life on Earth. If a water source becomes contaminated due to pollution, it can lead to health issues in humans, such as cancer or cardiovascular conditions. This article explores the causes of water pollution, how it can affect human health, and what people can do to help prevent it. Water is a natural resource that all living creatures require. Clean water is also used in manufacturing and for social and economic development.
