Air Pollution Profile of Turkey

As is the case with all environmental problems, the two primary causes of air pollution in Turkey are urbanization -which has been rapid since the 1950s- and industrialization. Before industrialization more than 80% of the population lived in rural areas; now more than 60% live in the cities and industrial complexes. Among the developments contributing to air pollution in the cities are incorrect urbanization for the topographical and meteorological conditions, incorrect division of urban land into lots, low quality fuel and improper combustion techniques, a shortage of green areas, an increase in the number of motor vehicles and inadequate disposal of wastes.
