418. Cities Can Seriously Damage Your Health!

Description

This Geo Factsheet is part of a series on sustainable cities and looks at why, in general throughout the world, urban areas are less healthy. It goes on to examine the causes of this, for example, high densities within urban areas and the lack of green space and unsustainable waste disposal. It then looks at how cities could be made healthier and explores, via new case studies, some of the major improvements made.
