Reduce Pollution with No Negative Influence on GDP

17 Aug 17

The new study has found regulation which will help in reducing pollution efficiently. The regulation will also not negatively affect GDP. A new research shows that the air pollution policy can reduce the extent to which population growth in urban cities causes an increase in pollution emissions. The new policy is very advantageous as it does not disrupt the economic growth going in metropolitan areas.

There is a forever need to scrutinize trade-off between the economic profits and environmental costs of urbanization. It is because of the move of global population towards urbanization to achieve higher quality of life. Everyone is aware of the fact that half of the world’s population lives in urban areas. United Nations projects an addition of another 2.5 billion people in cities by 2050. The companies cluster in cities to get best of the talents and receive higher productivity. How pollution scales up with population growth remains unknown.

The relationship of scaling is necessary for policymaking. The study was led by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and it appeared in the journal PLOS ONE.
