Abstract [en]

Soundscape management is urgently needed in developing countries. Take for example Lima, the capital of Peru. Because people have moved to cities to seek a better life and to work in the growing industrial sector, Lima’s population has grown rapidly since the 1960’s, to reach 8.5 million in 2007 (30 % of Peru’s population). Public transport in Lima is by road vehicles rather than by trams and trains. Apart from chemical air pollution and particulate matter, noise pollution increases intensely with the ever-increasing number of vehicles (on average 3.7 % per year). Current developments are all but sustainable, and Lima city urgently needs to implement efficient noise-abatement strategies to control noise emissions and immissions. Soundscape management would be able to provide high acoustic quality. Thus, urban planning and environmental management have to be creatively developed.
