The steady growth in the number of vehicles on the road, heavy reliance on coal, use of dirty fuels for residential combustion, and extensive open burning are some of the major factors leading to the progressive deterioration of air quality in developing countries in Asia. And despite efforts to establish and implement air quality measurement systems, the development of infrastructure, environmental technology, and management practices continues to lag behind the rate of emission increase. Based on ten years of coordinated research, Integrated Air Quality Management: Asian Case Studies discusses technical and policy tools for the integrated air quality management of developing countries in Asia. The book begins with an overview of major issues of air quality management practices in developing Asia and potential approaches to reduce pollution, including opportunities for integration of air quality improvement and climate migration strategies. It covers the methodology and results of fine particulate matter monitoring using traditional filter-based and satellite monitoring techniques. It examines the applications of a 3D dispersion modeling tool for urban and regional air quality management focusing on surface ozone, fine particulate matter, and acid deposition. The final chapters discuss innovative control technologies for gaseous air pollutants and illustrate the integrated air quality management in developing Asia through case studies for target source categories including agricultural residue field burning, vehicle emissions, brick kilns, and industrial VOC emission. Illustrated with case studies, this book presents an integrated air quality management methodology that employs technical and policy tools to achieve air quality goals. It includes technical information and policy recommendations based on the outcomes of several multi-year air quality research programs coordinated by the Asian Institute of Technology. The text combines fundamental information and advanced knowledge useful to large audiences dealing with subjects of integrated air quality management.

The IUCN Environmental Law Programme (ELP) is proud to present this compilation of thought pieces from experts belonging both to the IUCN Commission on Environmental Law (CEL) and the IUCN Environmental Law Centre, both part of the ELP -- the world's leading environmental law network. The strong involvement of CEL members from North and Southeast Asia and Oceania in the symposium that led to this publication, and in its preparation, is a particularly pleasing feature of this initiative.While we continue to strive towards the improvement of the first generation of environmental laws and their effective implementation, our rapidly changing world also requires us to excite some critical thinking about the second generation of environmental laws. The symposium was an attempt to fuel discussion on what we have achieved with the first generation, what we need to do for the second generation, and how we can bridge these two generations. Through this book we have attempted to capture the provoking thoughts raised during the symposium, which recent developments have validated to be pressing concerns for the world.The articles cover a broad range of issues that are of interest, especially to the Japanese audience for which the symposium was designed, but also to the broader regional and international community. They examine the issues from the national, regional, and international perspectives, and focus not only on State action, but also on the contributions of a regional financial institution, the Asian Development Bank, which has been a staunch supporter of the ELP's capacity building programme in the Asian and Pacific region.

Why do some economies seem to excel at effective pollution management while others miss the mark when responding to deteriorating urban environments? These studies of pollution management in East Asia's newly industrialized economies (NIEs) include successful government responses in Singapore and Taiwan, qualified results in China and Indonesia, and much more limited success in Thailand and Malaysia. In each example, Michael Rock considers the starting point of the economy as it began its path toward industrialization in the post World War II period. He discusses the relevant historical and political context, the pressures placed on the political system from domestic and international sources, and the influence of ongoing trends in East Asia for democratization and economic liberalization. Rock's text makes it clear that each economy found unique, innovative ways to link environmental protection to its own political and economic institutions. Thus, while public pressure from both home and abroad gave strong impetus to successful programs in Taiwan, the development of policy in Singapore involved limited public review and a centralized, government-led process. The result of Rock's scholarship is a book that provides important lessons without being reductionist. The book offers insights to apply to pollution management in a diverse range of developing nations, but avoids attempts for precise prescriptions, or universally appealing, normative answers.
