The Economic Effects of Air Pollution on Timber Markets J. de Steiguer' ABSTRACT Air pollution damage to the environment has increased in recent years, and the threat to forests is now a matter of public concern.

Economic assessments can provide useful information to assist lawmakers in establishing the optimal level of pollution control. Six papers analyze potential economic effects of forest damage resulting from air ic effects in the Southeastern United States, the United States as a whole, Canada, Finland, and Europe as a whole are considered.

Unless more stringent policies are adopted, findings point to a significant increase in global emissions and concentrations of air pollutants, with. This book aims to strengthen the knowledge base dealing with Air Pollution.

The book consists of 21 chapters dealing with Air Pollution and its effects in the fields of Health, Environment, Economy and Agricultural Sources. It is divided into four sections.

Economics gives us a way to compare the possible benefits of a policy with its possible costs. VSL) to estimate the economic costs of outdoor air pollution. It finds that the cost of the health impact of air pollution in OECD countries (including deaths and illnesses) was USD trillion in The cost of the health impact of air pollution was estimated to be USD trillion in China inand USD trillion in India.

There are numerous effects of air pollution on the ecosystem which in turn have various economic implications. In simple terminology, we can say that air pollution effects can be both direct and indirect.

For instance, pollution of air primarily causes respiratory and other health hazards in people. From tothe U.S. population increased by one-third and the size of the U.S. economy more than doubled. Since the s, however, the United States, using a variety of anti-pollution policies, has made genuine progress against a number of pollutants.

This report provides a comprehensive assessment of the economic consequences of outdoor air pollution in the coming decades, focusing on the impacts on mortality, morbidity, and changes in crop yields as caused by high concentrations of pollutants.

Air pollution takes its toll on the economy in several ways: it costs human lives, it reduces people’s ability to work, it affects vital products like food, it damages cultural and historical monuments, it reduces the ability of ecosystems to perform functions societies.

This chapter discusses the relationship between economics and air pollution: first, it presents the main characteristics of the economic growth-environmental pressure debate and introduces the concept of environmental Kuznets curve hypothesis (EKC). As an example of the EKC, the estimated relationship between CO2 emissions and economic growth, using a cross-sectional sample of.

In response to unsustainable timber production in tropical forest concessions, voluntary forest management certification programs such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) have been introduced to improve environmental, social, and economic performance over existing management practices. However, despite the proliferation of forest certification over the past two decades, few.

Outdoor air pollution could cost the world a whopping $ trillion a year, or 1% of global GDP, bysays the study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The researchers analyzed daily spending, air pollution, and climate data from 12 provinces in Spain and made some alarming findings: Spanish consumers spend $29 to $48 million (USD) less on days when ozone pollution is 10 percent worse than usual, and that spending falls by $23 to 35 million on days when particulate matter pollution is.

Other activities associated with timber operations, such as application of fertilizer and pesticides, and the waste disposal practices of pulp paper mills, also contribute to water pollution.
