About the publication

Asia's rapid economic growth in recent years in combination with continued increases in population have brought to the region such global environmental problems as soil depletion, rapid tropical deforestation, and spreading damage from acid rain. The publication of this book is the first attempt to provide an in-depth report on the environment in Asia. Discussion of a broad spectrum of topics including economics, law, biology, and medicine is presented along with detailed data analysis by academic researchers and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). This book is based on an updated and newly edited translation of the Asian Environment White Paper originally issued by Toyo Keizai, Inc,. in late 1997. The first in a projected series of NGO perspective reports on the environment in Asia, the project is supported by the Japan Environmental Council.
