The paper gives guidance on the ways of reducing pollution in a township settlement.

The average levels of PM10 pollutants in Khayelitsha, a poor informal settlement near Cape Town in South Africa, are unusually high. The contributory factors are the burning of household waste, wood and used tyres; vehicular emissions; and dust. This paper gives guidance towards selecting interventions for reducing these pollutants.
