The paper supports SDG3, 11 and 15 by discussing the air pollution and the study will assist urban planners, policymakers, and health sectors.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by presenting an expanded framework of pathways through which city planning affects health, incorporating 11 integrated urban system policies and 11 integrated urban and transport interventions addressing current and emerging issues.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by identifying the minimum thresholds for urban design and transport features associated with two physical activity criteria: at least 80% probability of engaging in any walking for transport and WHO's target of at least 15% relative reduction in insufficient physical activity through walking.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by assessing policy frameworks for city planning for 25 cities across 19 countries to identify whether these policies support the creation of healthy and sustainable cities.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by calculating spatial indicators of urban design and transport features that support health and sustainability for 25 diverse cities in 19 countries.
This chapter focuses on the adverse effects of air pollution on the developing brain and discusses the evidence from human and animal studies suggesting that exposure to elevated air pollution during pre- and early postnatal development is associated with a number of behavioral and biochemical adverse effects.

This chapter supports SDG 6 by summarizing the current approaches for evaluating pathogen fate and transport in the environment, their removal during subsurface transport in porous aquifers and the needed infection protection to achieve safe drinking water.
Background: The effect of long-term exposure to air pollution on the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is still controversial, and the role of the interactions of air polluti
