Abstract

This paper deals with valuing health due to air pollution in Bangladesh. Human capital is an important asset in economic development. From air pollution human capital can not be utilized properly and gross domestic product (GDP) of a country decreases. Willing to pay (WTP) to avoid 1 and 14 additional days is important for workers, factory authorities and the government of a country. It provides financial supports to mitigate respiratory related diseases which are mainly caused by air pollution. Since no WTP is yet established in the labor sector of Bangladesh, so that this paper will show new way to the workers, factory owners and the government of this country.
