Tackling the pollution challenge

Tackling the pollution challenge is vital to securing human well-being. It is a critical insurance policy for current and future generations, the fulfilment of whose rights depends on a healthy environment.

Special attention must be paid to the needs of women, the poor and the disadvantaged, many of whom depend on well-functioning ecosystems for their livelihoods.

With enough political will, public support and business engagement, it is within our power to tackle pollution.

We have to face the challenge all the present pollution damages our surroundings. There is the rising consumption and living standards and population growth. Pollutants, including human-made chemicals and emissions and domestic and industrial waste streams, which are impairing the quality of the air that we breathe, the water that we drink, the soil in which we grow our food and the oceans on which millions depend for their livelihoods.
