About this book

Asian nations increasingly have to balance energy needs with environmental impacts and economic growth. These critical issues for the development of Asian nations and the quality of life of their citizens are extensively addressed in this volume which focuses on research and policy perspectives. A group of researchers focuses on Asian initiatives on global and regional environmental problems, the impact of energy and environment on development and international trade in Asia, the problems associated with siting major energy facilities, the Asian green movement and public reaction to environmental degradation, and the role of communities in achieving a balance between energy, environment and economics.


Energy and environment in international perspective; balancing economic development and environment; the public: client or decision-maker?; industry: partner or culprit?
