Rapid urbanization and industrialization has led to continuous  deterioration of air quality which i a major environmental problem in many urban centers in both the developed and developing countries. Air pollution is characterized by high concentration of suspended particulates matter, oxides of Sulphur and nitrogen primarily from increased use of vehicles.

The book provided information on rational basis for air quality management and green belt development in urban areas.
