Description of Document:
- Many parts of the region continue to face formidable economic and environmental problems, and have more immediately pressing priorities than air pollution, in spite of the heavy health damage which it inflicts. It is important therefore that any investment by states in the regions, or by donor organisations, in air pollution abatement should be as cost-effective as possible. This can be significantly enhanced by co-operation at the regional scale on air pollution monitoring, assessment and abatement systems.
