The field of environmental modelling and economics is one of the most exciting current areas of research. It is essential to learn how to assess the impact of economic investments on the environment and vice versa. The book contributes to understanding of how to evaluate the merits of stricter environmental controls. It illustrates health benefits analysis of implementation of the World Bank Emission Guidelines in thermal power plants in Delhi. It uses multi-disciplinary approach, where the knowledge from the subject domain of Environmental pollution, statistics, econometrics, sampling, and environmental modeling are collectively used to evaluate environmental policy intervention. Demonstration and validation of environmental modeling and econometric models will help professionals to plan air pollution control strategies not only for thermal power plants but also other major air polluting sectors. This will help researchers to formulate effective sectoral policies for environmental pollution control.
