Pollution is one of the many environmental challenges facing the world today. The impact of pollution is more severe in developing countries, leading to ill health, death and disabilities of millions of people annually. Developed countries have the resources and technologies to combat pollution. As a result of the health risks and the potential impact of climate change, there have been efforts to reduce pollution.

Developed countries have achieved substantial economic growth and development and can afford to focus on environmental goals because basic living necessities have been achieved.
