In one word, name an environmental factor that affects liveability.
Environmental factors are things like air quality, water quality, and access to green spaces. Liveability is how comfortable and safe an area is to live in. Liveability is impacted by environmental factors, like how clean the air is.
Environmental Factors and Liveability
Pollution: Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the environment that cause harm or discomfort to humans, other living organisms, or the natural environment. Biodiversity: Biodiversity is the variety of living organisms on Earth, including plants, animals, and microorganisms. It is important for sustaining life and providing ecological services. Climate Change: Climate change is a long-term shift in global weather patterns caused by an increase in the Earth's average surface temperature due to human activities, such as burning fossil fuels.
Cities with more green spaces, such as parks and gardens, tend to have lower levels of air pollution. Urban trees help reduce city temperatures by up to 8 degrees Celsius. Reducing car use can dramatically reduce the amount of air pollution in urban areas.
