METROPOLITAN DIMENSION OF SOCIAL HOUSING POLICY
The metropolitan area of Rio de Janeiro has compromised air quality due to the great concentration of sources of air pollutants and the mountains that interferes with the transportation of these pollutants. Despite this, has been receiving biggs enterprises, including industrial, attracted by the new highway BR493, the Metropolitan Arch. Thus, the objective of this study is to identify risk spaces, those areas that most concentrate air pollutants and which are inhabited by a more vulnerable population. The methodology uses the ArcGis software to create maps of the areas with difficulties in dispersing air pollutants and on the vulnerability of the population that when they are crossed, allow to obtain the map of the risk spaces. The results show that the risk spaces are precisely in the municipalities that have received the most new ventures.
