Impact of Pollutants on Soil and Air Quality

Developing countries rely mostly on their soil resources to sustain livelihoods of their populations. Because of their ever-increasing populations, enormous pressure is exerted on soils and other resources, which result with their use beyond sustainable levels. Waste products are also generated and in most cases are not properly disposed and they end up reducing the quality of both soil and air resources.
