Acknowledging that pollution tends to be concentrated in poor residential areas, this overview of environmental impact proposes that all sectors of development utilize environmentally friendly policies. Designing development policies and selecting investment allocations that support environmental health are discussed as a prime objective to all development programs. Social sectors including agriculture, forestry, water and sanitation, energy, transportation, and education are covered in detail to provide urban and rural planners the information required to implement development projects that respect the health of all citizens.
