-All activities of the SESA will be done for all urban areas taking into account that each urban area has specific information. For example, Nablus and Bethlehem are suffering from the environmental degradation because of the uncontrolled industrial activities inside the city of Nablus and scattered industrial workshops between the residential areas in Bethlehem. In addition, transportation and traffic congestion results in air pollution in Ramallah-Al Bireh and Bethlehem urban areas. Moreover, Hebron has the concern of air pollution from the factories in the adjacent areas on the border. Finally, Gaza suffers from high population density and limited renewable natural resources, which has led to deterioration in agriculture and water sectors.
