The economic progress of a country can be seen from its economic growth. One of the efforts to improve the economy is to accelerate regional development. The existence of development in each region leaves problems related to the environment, especially air pollution. These problems are often forgotten, because the development process is still focused on social and economic impacts. This study aims to determine the impact of development on air pollution in rural areas. This study uses data from the PODES (Village Potential) and Village Development Index (IPD) 2018 data collection, as well as several economic variables as instrument variables. The number of observations used was 75,436 villages. The method used is the instrumentalregression variable Two Stage Least Square (2SLS). The results of this study indicate that village development has a significant positive effect on increasing air pollution. Good planning is needed in development, so as to prevent negative effects. In addition, monitoring and evaluation of the ongoing/completed development process is required in order to minimize environmental degradation.Keywords: Air Pollution, Village Development, Instrumental Variables
