This book comprises five sections, which are collated into 31 chapters. The first part of the book provides An Introduction that offers some initial insights into the impacts and issues associated with urban pollution (Chapter 1). Since many nations now have legislation and policies in place for their designated environmental protection bodies to control and manage pollution to within regulated and permitted guidelines, Section 2 exposes Policy and Pollution through chapters that take a historical view of pollution proffer insight of relevant air policies, water polices and soil policies (Chapters 2–5), and demonstrate a range of types of pollution (Chapters 6–12). Section 3 assembles options for Monitoring, Remediation and Management through a collection of chapters concentrating on river ecology, urban hay meadows, ecosystems, waste disposal sites, building materials, zeolites, bioremediation, environmental impact assessment and citizen science (Chapters 13–22). Section 4 contextualises International Case Studies with examples from the USA, China, India, Brazil, Hungary, Ghana, Nigeria and Lebanon (Chapters 23–30). Finally, Section 5 converges with a Summary of the Book that bestows lessons that can be learnt to protect people and property in the built environment.
