Local, Regional & Global Environmental issues

Firstly, to look for adverse effects by not looking at the origin of is occurrence.
Secondly to understand cause and effect relationship in order to predict better and make possible efforts to reduce or vanish its adverse effects.

The WHO said about 3.3 million people had died as a result of indoor air pollution and 2.6 million deaths were related to outdoor air pollution.
Around 30bn cubic meters of gas is burned by the GCC countries per year, the equivalent of 900,000 barrels of oil per day.
The region’s construction industry is considered to be a major cause of air pollution due to the dust and particle emissions from factories catering to the sector.
