The document discusses air pollution in the UAE. It states that private vehicle usage is a major contributor to air pollution due to a lack of walkable street designs and cycling infrastructure in cities. Improving street designs to make cities more walkable and providing dedicated cycling lanes could help reduce automobile usage and decrease air pollution levels. This in turn would improve public health by lowering risks of respiratory issues and reducing air pollution's contribution to climate change.

in the UAE
Student: Fatma Almarzooqi
ICB102 - 22173 Expressive Clarity
Prof. Elizabeth Torres
Dec 6, 2023
Introduction
UAE is included in
the top 15 countries list that are
dealing with increased air pollution
levels
(Gilligan, 2023)
Problem
- Private vehicle usage is a contributor to air pollution.
- People use private vehicles for transportation because of street designs in the
UAE.
- Example: neighborhoods lacks walking paths which make people avoid walking in
the streets (ElEsawi, 2019).
Solution
Cities designed to be walkable have a positive
impact on reducing the use of automobiles for
transportation (Baobeid et al., 2021).
How can the solution be implemented?
1) Improve streets design .
2) Providing dedicated cycling infrastructure
(Loya, 2020)
Importance of Making Cities Walkable
Improving Public Health
1) Air pollution increase the risks of respiratory conditions
2) Air pollution hugely contributes to climate change and the formation of
acid rain.
Conclusion
By improve street design and providing dedicated cycling
infrastructure, the UAE can decrease air pollution in its cities
