Each year, pollution kills almost nine million people worldwide, mostly in developing countries.

That's according to the World Bank which is backing a new campaign called '"Pollution Management and Environmental Health".

The campaign aims to support affected countries to significantly reduce air, land and water pollution levels through pollution management planning and investments to improve health.

Camille Funnell reports on the progress from Bangkok, Thailand and Santiago, Chile.
