This chapter does not address epidemics of emerging or reemerging diseases, chronic degradation of the environment, progressive climatic change, or health problems associated with famine and temporary settlements.
It is often preferable to have a large quantity of reasonably potable water than a smaller amount of high-quality water UNHCR As noted by the authors, "water outage is more likely to be disruptive for businesses in some industries, such as health services, than for others" Chang and ChamberlinImproving routine maintenance will facilitate operations under normal circumstances and in the event of extreme hazards.
Environmental pollution leads to more ill-health.

We see instead the possibility for a new era of economic growth, one that must be based on policies that sustain and expand the environmental resource base. may provide a much more fruitful way of building policies, that can help to reduce disasters and mitigate hazards, while at the same time improving living standards and opportunities more generally.A report on the unhealthy exploitation of natural resources in building construction
