Environmental problems are human and/or natural influences on ecosystems that lead to a constraint, cutback or even a cessation of their functioning. They may be broadly categorized into environmental problems with proven solutions, and problems with emerging solutions. Urban environmental problems are threats to present or future human well-being, resulting from human- induced damage to the physical environment originating in or affecting urban areas.
