Morteza Rahmatian Department of Economics California State University, Fullerton In order to have the efficient provision of health, safety and environmental policies it is crucial to obtain a market valuation of risks to human health from air pollution in Tehran. In a world of scarcity, difficult decisions concerning tradeoffs between health and other desirable goods and services are unavoidable. It is hoped that this study will contribute to informing future policy decisions about the possible benefits of improving air quality.
FileAn Analysis of Improvements in Urban Air Quality: Implications from the South by admin — last modified Mar 04, 2010 09:11 AM
James C. Murdoch University of Texas at Dallas Morteza Rahmatian California State University, Fullerton Mark A. Thayer San Diego State University April 2005 Thus, the existing literature dealing specifically with the SCAB seems to suggest that ethnic minorities are subjected to higher exposure to both the criteria air pollutants and air toxics, even if one accounts for differences in income, education, land use, and other potential determinants of exposure. Presumably then, the benefits of improvements in air quality would fall disproportionately on such groups. Is this conjecture correct? The second question that we investigate is if there is still a property value premium associated with ambient air quality in the SCAB. Using the hedonic price method (Rosen, 1974; Freeman, 1979), we examine housing prices over the period 1980 – 2000 and test whether or not the effect of air pollution on house prices disappears as air pollution converges across space.2 A priori, as the air pollution converges spatially, one would expect any property value premiums due to air quality differences to dissipate in the same way that property values have been shown to “rebound” from smaller scale environmental clean-ups(see Kiel (1995); Kohlhase (1991); Dale, et al, 1999) .

Report No. 32043-IR Sector Note June 30, 2005 Rural Development, Water and Environment Department Middle East and North Africa Region The World Bank The objective of this report is to provide an estimate of the cost of environmental degradation in Iran. Despite the difficulties involved in assigning monetary values to environmental degradation, such estimates can be a powerful tool to raise awareness about environmental issues and facilitate progress toward sustainable development. It is hoped that this study will provide an instrument for policymakers to better integrate the environment into economic development decisions.

FileChlorinated Hydrocarbons in Marine Biota and Coastal by admin — last modified Mar 07, 2010 10:55 AM
Stephen de Mora, Scott W. Fowler, Imma Tolosa, Jean-Pierre Villeneuve, Chantal Cattini The spatial distribution of various organochlorinated compounds was investigated in the Gulf and Gulf of Oman based on marine biota (fish and various bivalves) and coastal sediment collected in Bahrain, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during 2000–2001. Several potential organic contaminants from agricultural (e.g., DDT and its breakdown products, lindane, endrin, dieldrin, endosulfan) and industrial (PCBs) sources were measured. Sediment burdens for all compounds, even for an apparent hot spot near a refinery in Bahrain, were amongst the lowest reported for surface sediments from other seas. Concentrations of DDTs were low in the muscle and liver of all fish (orange spotted grouper and the spangled emperor) analysed. Similarly, the levels of chlorinated hydrocarbons were low in the various bivalve species, notably rock oysters and pearl oysters. These results contribute to the sparse regional database for organochlorinated compounds in the marine environment. Moreover, they can be used as the most recent end point for elucidating temporal trends. Whereas the levels, albeit relatively low, of PDDTs in the rock oysters from the Gulf of Oman have remained uniform, there has been an irregular but generally decreasing trend in concentrations of PPCBs during the last two decades.
