Asian Perspectives. New Horizons in Environmental Economics Series
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 major new volume which focuses on research and policy perspectives. A distinguished group of researchers from Asia, Europe and North America, 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. Researchers and policymakers, public policy and management researchers and environmentalists will welcome this important book which addresses the key issue of balancing the conflicting objectives of energy planning, environmental management and economic development.

'This book is useful for those who want to better understand the complexity of development dilemmas in Asia. It can be used as a reference book for university students, researchers, industrial practitioners, and policymakers who are interested, or involved, in Asian development... Because of the extensive involvement of the local experts in the study, this book bears a unique value in telling the inside stories of energy, environment and economic interactions in Asia.' -- Lin Gan, IIASA, Austria
